  1. I can remember NYE 1975 I was 13 years old & all my family was together @ my grandmothers for a NYE party I stayed home to watch the Habs vs. Red Army game with a large pizza lol.
    This game still remains as one of my favorite games in my long term memory lol.
    Tretiak was awesome so was Dryden in net for the Habs but the Habs offence was so powerful it was magical to watch.
    NYE 1975 makes me smile & wonder @ where did time go sitting here getting old lmao!
    I love my Habs & hope this is the year we can take Lord Stanley.
    Go Habs Go !!!
