The St. Louis Blues were part of the NHL’s first expansion era in 1967-68. Despite the struggles of other clubs in their debut campaigns, the Blues closed out the season in third place in the West Division with a respectable 27-31-16 record.

The Canadiens faced the Blues for the first time on October 28, 1967, earning a 4-1 victory at the Forum. The Habs picked up a 3-1 win in their first visit to St. Louis on November 22, 1967.

The Blues made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals in their first two NHL seasons, in 1967-68 and 1968-69. The Canadiens were their opponent both times, with the Habs sweeping the Blues on each occasion. At the time, Scotty Bowman was behind the Blues’ bench, just a few years before the legendary couch would head to Montreal.

There has only been one other matchup between the two teams in the postseason, when the Canadiens swept the Blues 4-0 in their first round series in 1977.
