Maxim Lapierre Hot Materials Jersey Card

In the first game of the Montréal Canadiens / Washington Capitals game, the Caps were dominating in the first period, shooting 19 times on Jaroslav Halak, so when coach Jacques Martin needed to turn the tide around, he sent Maxim Lapierre's line out to do some damage - and they did just that.

Within seconds, the Caps were stuck in their own end, unable to withstand the pressure and in need of catching-glove heroics by José Théodore to keep the game close.

Needless to say, not only am I hoping for more of the same tonight, I hope Martin doesn't release the gritty speedster for less than a minute in the first period like he did two nights ago.

This 2005-06 Hot Prospects card (#HM-ML of the Hot Materials insert sub-set) by Fleer (or, technically, by Upper Deck) incorporates a pretty big swatch off the Habs' red (now home, then away) jersey and was taken from a photo shoot. Here's what Fleer had to say about it on the back of the card:
You have received a Maxim  Lapierre Jersey trading card from Fleer LLC. On the front of this card is an authentic piece of a jersey worn by Maxim Lapierre in a photo shoot. We hope you enjoy this piece of hockey history as we at Fleer continue to keep you as close as you can get!
Yes, you read correctly: hockey history. Feels good, doesn't it?
