Grand moments

February 7th, 1914
After five seasons in the league, the Canadiens earned a playoff spot for the first time in team history following the 1913-14 campaign.

On March 7, 1914, they met the Toronto Ontarios at the Westmount Arena for the first match up of a two-game, total-goal series. George Vezina sparkled in goal, stonewalling the visitors in a 2-0 shutout. On the offensive side of things, Harry Scott became the first Canadiens player to score in postseason competition and Donald Smith added the insurance marker.

Coach Jimmy Gardner’s team had their season come to an end four days later in Toronto, when the Ontarios came out on the winning end of a 6-0 game.
