The Montreal Canadiens honor the Montreal Expos by raising a banner with the Expos’ retired numbers at the Bell Centre. On hand are two Expos legends, Gary Carter and Andre Dawson. The Expos had played in Montreal from 1969-2004 before moving to Washington in 2005. The Canadiens also adopt the Expos’ former mascot Youppi! as their own. The Canadiens would win the game against the Boston Bruins 4-3.
