on this day in..

on this day the last ever game at the Montreal Forum was played. the Canadiens beat the Dallas Stars 4-1. the post game ceremony featured many of the Habs great. the last one introduced was Maurice Richard, who had a 16 minute standing ovation. at one point his eyes welled up with tears. a torch was passed down from captain to captain and taken to the Bell Centre (formely Molson Centre). the Canadiens first game in the new building was a win over the New York Rangers.
