See the Habs' Gary Carter tribute

Spring training kicked into gear this weekend with everyone reporting and most teams getting down to the nitty-gritty of workouts on Monday. Allow me to morph some hockey here, however, with a look at the fitting tribute the Montreal Canadiens had Sunday night in the Bell Centre to honor the late Gary Carter, who went into the Hall of Fame with an Expos cap after his great years at Olympic Stadium.

Youppi, the Expos' old mascot who has switched allegiances to the Habs, donned his old uniform for one night with the No. 8 patch. Nice video and sweet use of the ice for the laser show.
