Today in Habs History: November 2nd Edition

 

 

1937: A benefit All-Star game (the second in NHL history) for the family of Howie Morenz was held at the Forum in Montreal.

 

A crowd of 8,683 were on hand as the NHL All-Stars defeated a combined team of Canadiens and Montreal Maroons, 6-5.

 

 

1943: Montreal Canadiens began a team-record 13 game home winning streak, with a 2-1 win over the New York Rangers. Rookie goalie Bill Durnan (on his way to an NHL-record 12-0-2 start to his NHL career) won his second straight game.

 

1963: Jean Beliveau scored twice and added two assists in the Canadiens' 5-1 win against the Detroit Red Wings.

 

 

1968: Following an extensive remodelling, the Montreal Forum was re-opened. The Habs celebrated by beating the Red Wings 2-1. Jean Beliveau scored the first goal in the re-built Montreal Forum at 4:38 of the first period.
