Today in Habs History: November 8th Edition


1925: The Montreal Canadiens send Sprague Cleghorn to the Boston Bruins for $5000.



1942: Canadiens rookie Maurice Richard scored his first NHL goal in a 10-4 win over the New York Rangers,  at the Forum in Montreal. Toe Blake scored twice for the Canadiens, to give him 100 goals in his NHL career. Buddy O'Connor had a goal and five assists (including an NHL-record four assists in the third period).



1952: "Rocket" Richard scored his 325th career goal, to break the all-time record for NHL goals, held by Nels Stewart. It came in a 6-4 win over the Chicago Black Hawks in Montreal, exactly 10 years after Richard's first NHL goal. In the same game, Elmer Lach became the 5th player in franchise history to score 200 goals as a member of the Canadiens.
