Montreal Canadiens


Only two teams compare with the Montreal Canadiens in terms of pure dominance: the New York Yankees and Boston Celtics.  When it comes to hockey, there is no comparison.  The Canadiens have won 24 Stanley Cup championships and are the oldest continually operating club in the National Hockey League.  Proudly donning their red, blue and white sweaters, the Canadiens have been an institution in Quebec for nearly 100 years.  Competing in the National Hockey Association, Montreal played its first game on January 5, 1910, and earned its first Cup in 1916 over the Portland Rosebuds before joining the NHL in 1917.   Joe Malone scored 44 goals in 1917-18, a record that stood for 27 years.  The Montreal Forum became the Habs' home in 1926-27, and back-to-back Stanley Cups were claimed by Montreal in 1930 and 1931.  Thanks in large part to the "Punch Line" of Maurice "Rocket" Richard, Toe Blake and Elmer Lach, the Canadiens hoisted the Cup in 1944.  During the 1950s, Montreal played in the Cup finals each year, winning six times.  Stars of that era include Jean Beliveau, Doug Harvey, Bernie Geoffrion and Jacques Plante.  The Canadiens garnered five Cup titles in the 1960s and six in the 1970s.  Bob Gainey, Guy Charbonneau, Mats Naslund, Larry Robinson and Patrick Roy helped win the Cup in 1986, while the 1992-93 team earned the franchise's most recent title with 10 consecutive overtime playoff victories.  The 2009 NHL All-Star Game is scheduled for Montreal.
