Carbonneau Tries To Light Higgins Fire - Gazette
"Chris has to understand what kind of player he is," Carbonneau said after the Canadiens practised yesterday at the Bell Centre. "He's an up-and-down skater who has to go straight to the net. We want him to be the player we drafted. He has 21 goals and, if you look at them, 15 or 16 of them were scored from five feet away from the net."

"Every time I played against Elmer, I knew I was playing against one of the best," Schmidt said. "I had to give my best every game. We had great battles against that line of Lach, Rocket Richard and Toe Blake. It was just ability against ability. I thought it brought out the best in the Kraut Line. We tried to hold them down and we scored very few goals against them. They scored more. Richard was the guy who scored them. It was a pleasure and an honor to play against those guys."

Pas le droit à l'erreur - RDS
"C’est en effet avec un alignement remodelé que le Canadien, qui montre une fiche de ,500 mais qui n’a rien offert de bien convaincant à ses six derniers matchs, tentera de consolider ses acquis - ou mieux encore, d'améliorer sa position - au classement de l’Association de l’Est."

"Rendu à la mi-mars, la Flanelle sacrée lutte vaillamment pour le titre de la division Nord-Est et de l'Association de l'Est. Et le tout, sans avoir sacrifié un seul jeune et en ayant considérablement rajeuni l'équipe." - Rejean Tremblay
