According to Paul Kitchen's book on the old Senators, the Pavilion had a capacity of 4000 spectators. No mention of the size of the rink, maybe it was smaller than current standards.

The Montreal Forum was the greatest hockey building I ever stepped foot in, followed by Maple Leaf Gardens and Madison Square Garden.

Green = current
Yellow = former, but still in existence
Red = demolished

GE has some satellite photos locations dating back to 1995, where possible I've timestamped the links to show them before demolition. Activate the "Show Historical Imagery" button in Google Earth--it's the "clock" button on the upper tool bar.

Requires the full Google Earth install:

Anybody have a working link to that first file?
