The Montreal Canadiens' faithful delivered an unforgettable memorial in the club's first home game since the death of Guy Lafleur.

On top of a touching video tribute, the Bell Centre crowd gave a 10-minute standing ovation and participated in a moment of silence before Sunday's contest against the Boston Bruins.

Lafleur, one of the most decorated players in NHL history, died Friday at the age of 70. After being selected first overall by Montreal in 1971, "The Flower" went on to win five Stanley Cups, three Art Ross trophies, two MVPs, and a Conn Smythe.

He's also the Canadiens' all-time leader in assists (728) and points (1,246).
