Quiet on the set! Annnd ACTION!
With the launch of the feature film, Pour toujours, les Canadiens in theaters across the province, we caught up with one of the film's stars, Claude Legault, who was at the Bell Centre for Monday's Habs game, to get his take on the flick.

The cast also got to rub elbows with hockey royalty in the form of Jean Beliveau himself.
"Jean was really impressed by our work. But seriously, his movie experience went extremely well. When you spend your career like he did with everyone chasing you trying to hit you, it's normal to be as calm under pressure as he was," laughed Legault of Beliveau's trademark poise before the camera. "We talked about hockey on the set all the time. Oddly enough, we talked about hockey today, but not really about his amazing career. I actually had to bring up his own career so we could talk about it a little."
That being said, Beliveau surely doesn't need any prodding to gush about his time on the silver screen.
