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 Carey Price‘s playoff performance in this year’s NHL postseason. This goaltender is commonly known as one of the best in the world, and teams understandably don’t seem to look forward to facing him in net.
To truly understand how Price alters a game, however, Ben reflects on his style of play. Watch as Ben breaks down five ways he believes Price showcased his exceptional talents in the playoffs, making him the backbone of Montreal’s Stanley Cup run!
