Habs celebrate 100 years

And in style, too, with a 5-1 win over the arch-rival Bruins, with Cammalleri getting the hat trick and Carey Price making 37 saves.

Before the game, pretty much every living Hab great in history was out there tonight on the ice for the 100th anniversary ceremonies, from Jean Beliveau to Guy Lafleur, from Dickie Moore to Yvon Cournoyer, from Patrick Roy to Ken Dryden. Butch Bouchard and Elmer Lach had their numbers retired as part of the night. Plenty of pomp and circumstance, to be sure, but this is a team whose stories deserve to be celebrated.


Happy Birthday, Habs!

    Am I crazy? Have they been celebrating 100 years for about 3 years now?

    Were you there? I really enjoyed the game ( my sister was the Boston fan in the Sanderson/Esposito/Orr days, love it when we beat them!) but missed the pre-game stuff; I was hoping they would replay it on RDS or something but not so far, I'll check their website…

    We just need to lure the ghosts over from the Forum and we'll be set.
