Crowds have been going wild for the Montreal Canadiens since 1909, mostly at the historic Forum located on Atwater between Saint-Catherine and Maisonneuve. After the completion of the Bell Centre in 1996, the Forum was converted into an entertainment complex complete with a movie theatre, sports bar, comedy club, restaurants and shopping.
Carey Price, cool as a cucumber.
The Habs slick one past the opposing goalie in one svelte swoop.
A Hab, a Nordique and a Ref walk into a sports bar… Known as the “Battle of Quebec: Good Friday Massacre”, this giant brawl lasted the equivalent of an entire period and ended with over 250 minutes of penalties.
Get your gameface on and get ready for some hockey! Head down to your local sport bar and enjoy the game with your fellow fans.
