MONTREAL CANADIENS POSTSEASON
The Montreal Canadiens were formed all the way back in 1909 and are one of the most successful franchises in the history of American sports. The Habs (the Canadien's nickname that is short for Les Habitants) have made the playoffs an astounding 81 times, won 34 division championships and brought 24 Stanley Cups championship banners to the Canadiens faithful.
Over the course of their illustrious history, the Canadiens have sent 58 coaches, players and general managers to the Hall of Fame, including Guy LaFleur, Patrick Roy, John LeClair, Bernie Geoffrion and many more. They all played an important role in building the championship powerhouse that the Canadiens became in the '50s, '60s and '70s.
While the Habs were a consistent threat in the playoffs for decades, the 1970s was the team's golden age. With stellar players (such as Ken Dryden, Larry Robinson and Guy LaFleur) and the watchful eye of coach Scotty Bowman, the Canadiens would win six championships during the '70s and cement their place as one of the greatest squads in NHL history.
With a conference finals appearance in 2010, the current Canadiens team has the look of a contender that could add yet another banner to the roof of the Bell Centre.
