Canadiens Score Historic Goal

One of the most storied franchises in NHL history reached another milestone Monday. Mike Cammalleri scored the 20,000th goal in Canadiens history 4:59 into their game against the Ottawa Senators. The 20,000 goals include regular-season goals from the National Hockey League as well as the National Hockey Association which preceded the NHL. Newsy Lalonde scored the franchise's first goal in Montreal's NHA debut on Jan. 19, 1910, 5:00 into a 9-4 loss to Renfrew. The Canadiens also celebrated their 100th year as a franchise earlier this month.
