Formerly the Quebec Nordiques (1979 to 1995), the Colorado Avalanche made its NHL debut in 1995-96. In its first season in Denver, the Avalanche captured the first of two Stanley Cups.

The Canadiens faced their former provincial rivals for the first time on November 25, 1995 in a meeting at the Forum, a game that would end in a 2-2 tie.

Montreal and Colorado, who won the Stanley Cup in 1996 and 2001, have never met in the playoffs.
