Mid Morning Habs Trivia and Links

Well Happy Family Day, Louis Riel Day, Islander Day, President's Day or, if you live in Quebec, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, BC or the Territories, Monday!

While the Habs get ready for practice this morning, here's a couple bits of history and a few links to tie you over.

1924: Canadiens' fans waited two hours in the Mount Royal Arena for the Senators to arrive for their game. But they never showed! The team was stranded on a snowbound train 50 miles from Ottawa. The game was played the next night (a 3-0 Habs' win).

1995: Patrick Roy became the 31st goaltender in NHL history to appear in 500 games as the Canadiens won 3-2 in overtime over the Islanders.

Happy Birthday to former Habs defenseman Pierre Bouchard, who turns 64 today.
