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 reacts to the Habs losing five straight games down the stretch against teams they’ll be facing in the playoffs. Not the way you want to end the season! He’ll tell you his feeling on the Canadiens missing out on the chance to leapfrog the Jets who were in their own tailspin, which means: bring on the Leafs.
Ben believes it’ll be an exciting playoff matchup, even with Montreal as the underdog, and he’ll highlight some positives to kick start this week off before games begin. Here’s hoping the Canadiens get their full roster back, because they’ll need it!
