The Gold Star goes to large contingent of Nordiques fans in pockets throughout the Prudential Center that took over the entire rink while spontaneously cheering, setting off air horns and chanting throughout the proceedings at an otherwise dead rink. They also found their way in the Bs dressing room following the game to present Tim Thomas with a No. 94 Nordiques sweater representing the year that Quebec took Thomas in the ninth round. Patrice Bergeron had a smile on his face talking about the rabid Nordiques fans prior to the game while knowing that theyd be showing up en masse and Claude Julien said after the game that hopes the people of Quebec get another NHL team. I completely agree with him.
