Top Montreal Moments

from Tony Care of CBC Sports,

Whether he was watching the Montreal Canadiens from the bench when his father coached the team or broadcasting their games with the late Danny Gallivan, Dick Irvin always had the best seat in the house.

Ever since Dick Irvin Sr. patrolled behind the Habs bench beginning in 1940, the younger Irvin has witnessed most of the great moments in the team’s history, along with the bulk of its best players….

Top 5 moments

1. Closing of the Forum (March 11, 1996) — “The emotion in the building was unbelievable, and the ovation the Rocket received from the fans was something to behold.”

2. Russia’s Red Army squad vs. Montreal (Dec. 31, 1975) — “I didn’t think it was that great a game as everybody else seems to think it was. It was very one-sided, even though the teams tied 3-3.
