The Montreal Canadiens are an NHL franchise in the Northeast Division of the Eastern Conference.

The Canadiens are one of the most storied franchises in the NHL, with 24 Stanley Cup titles. In 1923-24, they won their first Stanley Cup, as well as another in 1930. In the 1940s, Maurice Richard and Toe Blake led the Canadiens to two more Cup titles. In the 1950s, the Canadiens set a record with five straight Stanley Cups, led by Jean Beliveau, Doug Harvey, Henri Richard and goalie Jacques Plante.

In 1976-77, the Canadiens lost only 8 games en route to winning one of four straight Stanley Cups. Guy Lafleur, Yvan Cournoyer, Ken Dryden and Larry Robinson led the Canadiens to ten Stanley Cups in 15 seasons during the 60s and 70s. In the late 1980s, goaltender Patrick Roy led the Canadiens to another Stanley Cup, as well as their final Cup championship in 1993. The Canadiens suffered through a period of relative mediocrity during the rest of the ‘90s, but ended up as the top seed in the Eastern Conference at the end of the 2007-08 season. Despite losing in the second round of the playoffs, the Canadiens are favored to remain at the top of the Northeast Division in 2008-09.

Montreal plays out of the Bell Centre which seats 21,273.

Stanley Cups won: 1915-16, 1923-24, 1929-30, 1930-31, 1943-44, 1945-46, 1952-53, 1955-56, 1956-57, 1957-58, 1958-59, 1959-1960, 1964-65, 1965-66, 1967-68, 1968-69, 1970-71, 1972-73, 1975-76, 1976-77, 1977-78, 1978-79, 1985-86, 1992-93.

    Connor lmao the devs are stupid? How many sweeds do you think own a xbox or a playstation 3? How many more nhl fans do you think there are than fans of swedish leagues? Why would they go out of there way spend more money more resources to appeal to a few thousand more people in ONE COUNTRY when the biggest hockey market in the world is in North America. I hope you never own a business for your own sake you would be so content on catering to every single person you would be broke.[]
