A moment of silence.

Bernie "Boom Boom" Geoffrion was called up to the Eternal Game early this morning after a brief battle with stomach cancer.

Thoughts and prayers go out to his family, who are in Montreal tonight for Boom Boom's number-retirement ceremony. No obituary I write could do justice to a man who was a member of one of the greatest teams ever (the Canadiens team that won 5 Cups between 1956 and 1960), so I'll let TSN's article do the talking for me.

Rest easy, Boom Boom.
