Game #37 Montreal at Washington 4pm EST Dec. 31 in Habs & Hockey Talk Posted January 1 As this game went on, I thought back to 1975 when I was an 11 yr old kid and my Dad took me along with him on his business trip in Montreal... with plans of going to see my first-ever Habs game. This was the one: https://www.hockey-reference.com/boxscores/197504050MTL.html I couldn't believe my eyes and ears the whole time I was there, it was like I was in a dream. Our team were indeed the Flying Frenchmen back then... every 30 seconds it was score! score! score! score! score! Dad even took me up to the gondola before the game started up and I met Dick Irvin... Danny Gallivan wasn't there at that moment though, too bad. Anyways, as Washington was piling up the goals last night, I thought "Well, here's the payback for the 1975 10-2 drubbing... they're gonna turn it around right back on us almost 50 years later". They pretty near did.
