Today in Habs History: November 24th Edition

 

1944: The Canadiens send Felix Rossignol, Gerry Plamondon, Johnny Mahaffy and Tod Campeau traded to Pittsburgh (AHL) in a cash deal.

 

 

1960: Dickie Moore scored his 20th goal of the season in his 21st game (a 3-1 loss at Detroit) to equal an NHL record for fastest 20 goals in a season (set by former linemate Maurice Richard in 1944-45).

 

 

1962: Jean Beliveau picked up four assists as the Canadiens tied 5-5 with the Boston Bruins, at the Forum.

 

1976: Guy Lafleur scored twice and added two assists as the Canadiens won 8-1 against the Cleveland Barons.

 

Earlier that day, the Canadiens dealt John Van Boxmeer to the Colorado Rockies for a 3rd round pick in 1979 and cash.

 

 

1984: Mats Naslund scored his first career hat trick to lead the Canadiens to a 6-4 win against the Detroit Red Wings.

 

 

The game was also the last game in a Canadiens uniform for Guy Lafleur. He would miss the next game against Boston the following night with a “groin” injury and announce his retirement on November 26th.

 

 

1988: Bobby Smith scored the 300th goal of his NHL career as the Canadiens lost 5-3 to the Nordiques.
