Gotta Hab it?

Posted by Jeff / December 4, 2009

20091204_habs.jpgThe cherry on top of the Montreal Canadiens' five year series of 100th anniversary celebrations is today, culminating with the team's Centennial Game against the Bruins, tonight at the Bell Centre. The 100-year-old hockey club kicked off the party on November 12, 2005, retiring Dickie Moore and Yvan Cournoyer's legendary No. 12 in a ceremony in Montreal. Since then, fellow Hall-of-Famers Bernard "Boom Boom" Geoffrion (5), Serge Savard (18), Ken Dryden (29), Larry Robinson (19), Bob Gainey (23) and Patrick Roy (33) also looked on as the jerseys they made famous were sent to the Bell Centre rafters. Plaza's were built, statues were erected, and a movie was produced; all in the glory of the beloved Montreal Canadiens.

Surely fans will be talking all day, and for a day or two afterward, about tonight's Centennial Game. It's safe to say the players and management, riding a four-game losing streak, feel their collars a wee bit tight to deliver something special on the ice, following a protracted pregame tribute to a century of hockey.

There are many YouTube video tributes to the Habs. Do not miss this one. It's inspiring. Share your thoughts on the Habs, past present or what you think the future might hold. Go Habs Go.
