I was nine years old when the Habs and Bruins met in the 1977 Stanley Cup Final. The two "Original 6" teams clashed again in the 1978 final and 1979 semi-finals. Needless to say, for a young hockey-playing Montrealer, these victories were bliss. To this day my favourite Canadiens team is Scotty Bowman's lineup from the late seventies.
