Habs vs Nords - 1st game ever

For the old guys....and maybe newer ones...., on RDS, the first game that was ever played in the NHL between the Habs and the Nords...

It's great to see all those faces, always interesting to see how there were just no physical play compared to this day, the lack of technique in goaltending etc. but one thing that strikes me everytime I watch old Habs games......Geez do I miss René Lecavalier and Gilles Tremblay....

1-1, after the second period.

I don't believe I've ever seen this game.

Yes. You see Lafleur, hair floating in the wind, in the time he had some!

Noticeable as well: the shoulder pads were thin! Players did'nt look like tanks on the ice and they were less concussions!

Well yeah, guys weren't doing their best Robocop impressions skating 30 second shifts full bore into other guys and trying to kill each other so they didn't have to go back to the farm.

It was a game about technique.

They're showing another one tonight. Game 5 of a best of 5 series, from 1982. That's when the rivalry really got going. Friday they're airing the infamous good Friday massacre.

I liked hockey before helmets, gamed oozed character back then. Roger Doucet, Danny Gallivan, Claude Mouton.

I was good last night with Rene Lecavalier and Gilles Tremblay.

But awful tonight with Houde and Denis. What's the point to have the new commentators for an old game ??? We all know the result of the game...

THAT IS A MYTH THAT THERE WERE A LOT LESS CONCUSSIONS.Many players played with concussions because it was considered cowardly to complain.Paul Henderson had 5 concussions and said if you complained the gm or coach would find some one else.You think when Pat Quinn nailed Orr he did not suffer concussion.Smelling salts were rampant in the 70's every player would be snorting after they got danged.The reason things have changed is because lawyers and Poilticians started to get involved.

Watched another great game last night from 1978. The Boston Garden, right on top of the ice, loved those days. Real hockey. They cut most the commercials out, action seemed end to end. Although, one of the few games we lost we won the cup in 6 games. Bruins said Larry Robinson killed them, never anybody anymore deserving of the Conn Smythe that him that year

I prefer the new guys because they're giving us a fresh new take of the match, especially knowing what will happen after that. If it would only be the old games, I would probably would not watch it since we've seen them time and time again.

And while hearing Lecavalier and Tremblay is great, the worst possible moment to hear them was during the Vendredi Saint since they kept whining about the ugliness of fighting, going in full Radio-Canada snobish mode.

Classic game tonight for Jean Perrons' Habs in the Divison Final with the Nordique. Bobby Smith, Claude Lemieux and Ryan Walter and mighty Nats Naslund for the offence. Tough as nails young Corson Chelios and Nilan. Skrudland, Gainey, Carboneau and Larry Robinson holding a clinic on defence... the list goes on. Not a weak player on the team. And I forgot, Michel Bergeron and Guy Carbeneau commenting a game that Bergeron coached and Carboneau played in.
