100 seasons of home-and-home series
For the first time in ages, the Canadiens’ schedule does not include a back-to-back home-and-home series.  That’s probably good news for Montreal’s opponents who may be curious to see how they might have fared, given the Habs’ history in such match-ups.

466 - Home-and-home series the Canadiens have played over the years, beginning with the Ottawa Senators on January 22 and 26, 1910.

120 - Times the Habs have pulled out the brooms in a such a series since 1909, sweeping the back-to-back match-ups with two victories. 

78 - Home-and-home series contested between Montreal and the Boston Bruins, the Canadiens’ favorite back-to-back adversary.  The New York Rangers rank a close second with 71 lifetime match-ups.

43 - Times the Canadiens have been swept in a home-and-home set.

38 - Consecutive years since 1970-71 that the Habs have had at least one home-and-home match-up during the regular season. 

24 - Goals scored by the Canadiens in a single home-and-home series over the Quebec Bulldogs in 1920, posting 8-6 and 16-3 victories. 

15 - Franchise-record home-and-home match-ups contested by Dick Irvin’s squad in 1949-50. 

5 - Times a Canadiens goalie has shut out the opposition in both games during a home-and-home set. The last back-to-back series whitewash came in March 1977, when Montreal blanked the Detroit Red Wings in two straight games.
