Many of us remember the great rivalry between these two teams during the 1980s. We remember the close and hotly contested games. We remember the brawls. We remember depending on which side we supported how intensely we hated the opposing players and team. This was what rivalries are all about. Montreal versus Quebec lives on! On the ice, at least.
Now you won't have to remember the rivalry as you have the opportunity to relive the experience. In this home and away series (they play the night before in Quebec City), you'll have the opportunity to see the Guys (Lafleur and Carbonneau), Stephane Richer, Larry Robinson, and Vincent Damphousse face off versus Peter Statsny, Alain Cote, Real Cloutier, and Michel Goulet. Even the coaching match up of Jacques Demers/Jean Perron versus Michel Bergeron should be exciting.
Bring the kids out to see how hockey was played in the days when rivalries meant everything in hockey and this was the biggest rivalry in Quebec.
