Patrick Roy Moments: The End in Montreal (via captaincanuck7)
DISCLAIMER: DO NOT WATCH THE VIDEO PAST THE 2:40 MARK.
A few weeks ago, Jeff put up a video of the Statue of Liberty play where Patrick Roy made an ass of himself by flashing off a save that he ended up not making. Today, the Red Wings victimize Roy again, this time with Roy as a member of the Montreal Canadiens.
In a season that saw the Red Wings establish NHL records for regular season success with 62 wins, the Red Wings pounded opponents on occasion, including a 9-0 win against Edmonton in the fourth game of the season, a 9-4 win over Los Angeles, and an 8-1 win over St. Louis.* December 2, 1995 was one of these victories, an 11-1 victory over Montreal at the Montreal Forum. Canadiens head coach Mario Tremblay decided to leave Roy in for the first 9 goals the Red Wings would score, and after the then-future Hall-of-Famer got the hook, he got in the face of the Canadiens president and was traded three days later.
