Holiday Greetings from DBJ, Part IV

For our day-after-Christmas trip through the Canadian National Film Board's vault of hockey films, let's get historical with a 1998 documentary on legendary NHLer Maurice "Rocket" Richard.  What a great piece (and not a short one...it's about 40 minutes long!) that chronicles the rise of the Canadiens in Montreal - and the effect that Richard had on the game.  Hopefully you'll have some time this weekend to check the whole film out - it's quite good.  (And you'll recognize some footage from the "Here's Hockey!" piece that I shared earlier.)
