The Maroons had the Forum and the Habs played in the arena at Mount Royal and St. Urban, which was demolished a few years ago for a Provigai.
The big garage that still stands at Drummond and Dorchester was the Victoria Rink where the first real hockey game was played.
The Canadiens played at the Forum from the time it opened. They had played at the Mount Royal Arena previously.The Mount Royal Arena, at the SE corner of Mount Royal and St. Urbain, running east/west to Clark was converted for industrial /commercial use. It was not demolished but burnt down clearing the way for the construction of the Provigo. Otherwise heritage issues would have precluded new construction.
