Center and team captain Saku Koivu of the Canadiens receives an eight-minute standing ovation from Montreal fans at the Molson Centre before a game against the Ottawa Senators as he returns to the ice for the first time since being sidelined with abdominal cancer at the age of 27. Koivu was declared cancer-free in February 2002. Montreal wins, 4-3, to clinch a playoff berth for the first time since 1998. In the Stanley Cup playoffs, Montreal will knock off the top-seeded Boston Bruins in six games before losing in the next round to the Carolina Hurricanes. A native of Finland, Koivu is dealt another serious setback in 2006 when struck in the eye by the stick of Justin Williams of the Hurricanes. Koivu suffers a detached retina, but returns to play despite reduced peripheral vision.

On Opening Day at Cincinnati's Riverfront Stadium, Hank Aaron ties Babe Ruth as the All-Time Home Run leader with his 714th career HR. The historic blast comes off Jack Billingham on Aaron's first swing of the season, a 3-1 pitch with two runners on base in the first inning. Aaron is presented with the ball by Commissioner Bowie Kuhn and Vice President Gerald Ford in a ceremony at home plate. He'll break the record four days from now, on April 8, in Atlanta's first home game of the season. Aaron finishes his career with 755 HRs and holds the record until he's passed by Barry Bonds in 2007.
