Guy's Reunion Night; and an amazing video hits YouTube

As part of the team's 25th anniversary celebrations, the Dallas Stars have been honoring alumni players before games.  Last night was Guy's turn to be honored and he took part in the ceremonial puck drop.  Here are a few photos:

You may also watch video of Guy dropping the puck here.

Edited to add 12/7/17:  Scott Burnside did a great Q&A with Carbo on ahead of Guy being honored by the Stars.  You can read it here.

It has also recently come to my attention that Episode 1, "Mere Players" of the Ken Dryden television series Home Game (which aired on CBC Television in 1990) has been posted to YouTube.  I have this show on VHS and it has some of the most amazing Carbo/Montreal Canadiens footage I've ever seen.  I'll just borrow what my friend Diane Lau said about this video years ago:  "This awesome video covers the pregame activities as well as a match between the Canadiens and the Oilers at the Forum in 1988. Carbonneau and his teammates prepare for battle, Ken analyzes the pregame Ritual, and there is a fantastic dissection of Guy scoring on Grant Fuhr. You will watch it over and over."

And here it is!

'Til next time!
