Videotron offers viewers a special evening with The Flower

Montréal, September 21, 2009 – Subscribers to Videotron’s illico Digital TV service will have front-row seats to the Guy Lafleur tribute Il était une fois Guy! Guy! Guy!, courtesy of illico on Demand. The celebration, held on Sunday, September 20, the hockey legend’s birthday, featured a battle of wits as approximately 800 guests, including hockey greats such as Dickie Moore, Luc Robitaille and Henri Richard, joined in an exciting game of hockey trivia. The party was also the scene of many personal tributes to Guy Lafleur, including a video featuring Patrick Roy, Scotty Bowman and Don Cherry.

A confrontation of epic proportions
Four teams of well-known athletes, each led by a stellar captain, faced off in the monumental three-period contest that tested their knowledge of all hockey-related matters: the Montréal Canadiens, led by Jean Béliveau, the Buffalo Sabres, captained by Gilbert Perreault, the Boston Bruins, with Raymond Bourque at the helm, and the Los Angeles Kings, piloted by Marcel Dionne. Did the battle go into overtime? Watch it and find out!
