The Hockey Hall of Fame today unveiled a spectacular exhibit commemorating the centennial of the Canadiens and launched publication of Honoured Canadiens, a coffee-table book that covers the club through the decades. Hats off to curator Phil Pritchard and his staff for assembling something that’s well worth a trip for any fan of the team.
There are some truly historic items on display.
Today, all-time greats Yvan Cournoyer, Larry Robinson, Serge Savard and Frank Mahovlich, winners of 26 Stanley Cups as Canadiens players, were on hand for the unveiling and to reminisce about the Montreal hockey dynasties of which they were part, to talk about this year’s edition of the team and more.
Settle back with this audio:
• Hall of Fame curator Phil Pritchard provides an overview (1:21);
• A hot-stove chat moderated by Gord Stellick. It opens with Savard speaking, a failed microphone providing a little comedy (15:49);
• Yvan Cournoyer (6:08) • Larry Robinson (5:42);
• Serge Savard (10:29) • Frank Mahovlich (4:57).
