This past weekend NHL.com columnist John McGourty caught up with 90 year old hockey legends Elmer Lach and Milt Schmidt.
"Every time I played against Elmer, I knew I was playing against one of the best," Schmidt said. "I had to give my best every game. We had great battles against that line of Lach, Rocket Richard and Toe Blake. It was just ability against ability. I thought it brought out the best in the Kraut Line. We tried to hold them down and we scored very few goals against them. They scored more. Richard was the guy who scored them. It was a pleasure and an honor to play against those guys."
