The Habs broke a sellout streak of almost 400 straight home games last night. They announced the attendance at 21,286. One person shy of the sellout.

An amazing historic picture:

Five years ago today. Béliveau RIP, celebrating the jersey retirement ceremony of Butch Bouchard RIP and Elmer Lach.

Elmer Lach, 96 years old, was there for Béliveau's funeral today.

Wow! Price's run with the Habs is already legendary:

- Second all-time in saves

- Third all-time in games played

- Fourth all-time in wins, and should easily reach first overall in the next 4 seasons.

- Fifth all-time in shutouts, passing Patrick Roy after last night's win.

Let's just add some Cups to that list of accomplishments!

Love this version of Les Brahs. Its wonderful seeing my favorite team employ a GM like Bergevin after Gauthier. Lots of Habs fans are getting their wish right now as they have to play the rookies on the back end. Beaulieau is coming along nicely.

You know me and how I love my prospects. What I am seeing are players that are coming in from the Bulldogs ready to play the Habs system. Bergevin has ensured a culture of teaching "the system", and uses the Bulldogs as a school to teach that system. So rather than being concerned with winning at the AHL level, the organization is more interested in prospects being able to contribute at an NHL level. I love seeing that sort of harmony. 

 

Beaulieu's progress after his last Hamilton stint has been astonishing. I'm sure that playing alongside Gonchar has had a massive impact on his development.
