Chris Nilan and Patrick Roy, who was back in Montreal Tuesday night as head coach of the Colorado Avalanche, were teammates on the 1986 Canadiens team that won the Stanley Cup, and Nilan shares some stories about Roy as a teammate during this week’s HI/O Show, along with Gazette columnist Dave Stubbs and sports editor/host Stu Cowan.
Nilan also talks about another former teammate, Mario Tremblay, and why he likes him so much. Canadiens fans know all about the bad realationship between Tremblay as a coach and Roy, which led to the goaltender being traded from the Canadiens to the Avalanche in 1995. But the panel talks about the two being back on speaking terms now and also about what Vincent Damphousse did that upset Roy on the day the goaltender played his final game with the Habs.
