Montreal Canadiens 100th Anniversary Game

100 Years of Habitant Hockey

The Montreal Canadiens celebrated 100 years of existence with a game against the Boston Bruins at the Bell Centre Friday night and defeated the Bruins by a score of 5 to 1. It was a night to remember for the Habs as they came alive for four goals in the second period to drown the Bruins in offense. Carey Price looked a modern day Patrick Roy on a day when the former Canadien was in attendance, taking shots in practice along with Ken Dryden.

Pre-Game Pageantry

Before the game, one of the most storied franchises in professional sport honoured its legends, with a ceremony that retired the jerseys of two of their oldest surviving former players: Elmer Lach and Emile Bouchard. Former Canadiens such as Guy LaFleur recounted stories from the 1970’s when he was a member of a dominant Canadiens team that won 5 Stanley Cups. They also raised to the rafters a banner with the names of every Canadien to ever wear the jersey: a tribute unparalleled in professional sport.

The Game Itself

A slow first period lead way to a flood in the second, as Michael Cammalleri scored a hat trick within 10 minutes to seal a dominant Canadiens win. It was also a big night for Carey Price, who has elevated his play recently. Price looked like the goaltender the Canadiens needed on Friday as he stonewalled all but one of the [kwlink 20570]Bruins shooters for 37 saves on the night.
