Most Memorable Moments Against The Senators
First ever

On December 19, 1917, all four teams in the newly formed National Hockey League saw action on opening night, with the Canadiens crossing swords with the Senators at Ottawa’s Dey arena. Former Quebec Bulldogs star, Joe Malone, made a statement in his debut. Playing his first game with the Canadiens, he finished the night with six points, including five goals, propelling the visiting team to a 7-4 victory. To this day, Malone remains one of only three NHL players to record a hat trick in his team’s inaugural game.
