“The editor is a friend of ours,” recalls Bergevin’s tailor Marc Patrick Chevalier. “We said, ‘OK. Let’s do a photo shoot with Marc at the start of the year when they were 13-2.

“The first time he wore it, I told my wife, ‘He wore the red suit!’ The next day, you see photos of him wearing the suit,” Chevalier said. “In Canada and in Toronto, they were comparing him to The Joker and that is mean. That was frustrating reading the haters. I don’t think there were too many people raving about it in the beginning. The second time in Game 4 against Winnipeg, it started to switch a little bit. It was like, ‘OK, it is a lucky suit.’ With yesterday and this morning, everyone is raving about it. There are no more haters.
