The Canadiens roll out their well-walked red carpet tomorrow night for a pregame, pre-centennial tribute to another Original Six rival. A we-don’t-hold-a-grudge gesture, really, considering it was the Chicago Blackhawks who derailed the greatest dynasty in National Hockey League history.

Canadiens GM Bob Gainey delivers his mid-term report card at 10:30 a.m. today. Inside/Out will provide coverage later today.
