Sure the All Star Break was nice but hey its time to get back to work. What do we have for “This Day”? Let’s find out. Being the last day of January and all, the search for moments was not very hard at all as the inbox was filled with some good classics. When all was said and done, the choice was very clear however. The Montreal Canadiens had a phenomenal run of four straight Stanley Cups in the late 1970’s. Today’s moment comes from 34 years ago on this day. As always, we have the video first and the moment soon to follow.
