MONTREAL, QC — Few phrases in Montreal Canadiens lore provoke more emotion or revive more memories than “The Forum“. Once called “the most storied building in hockey history” by Sporting News, the arena was home to nearly 18,000 Habs fans between 1924-1996.
Today that iconic structure on Cabot Square no longer echoes with the sounds of skates, sticks, pucks, and cheers amid Stanley Cup-winning excitement. However, Habs fans have found new ways to keep making their voices heard.
With this in mind, Rocket Sports Media is proud to bring you a new video column, Habs Fan Forum. The weekly video series is hosted by contributor Ben Dankiw. Each week he’ll take you on a journey to recap the highs and lows of the Habs from a fan’s perspective. So buckle up, it’s always a wild ride!
On this week’s episode, Ben breaks down the polarizing games at home against the Pittsburgh Penguins and Nashville Predators. He examines why those games looked just a little bit different and what led to the results.
With the playoff race now firmly in the rearview for the Habs, Ben shares his thoughts on what this team is really playing for now. Looking past all the noise of the coaching, management, and ownership problems, he talks about what he’s seeing on the ice. Believe it or not, Ben’s excited for the next few weeks of hockey: time to see what the young guys can do!
