And finally…

12. Who was the goalie for the Canadiens in their last 0-0 tie?

The key word in the question was tie, which takes out any overtime or shootout games.

The goalie was played his junior hockey with the Granby Bisons, and was on the Canadiens Stanley Cup winning roster in 1993.

But it’s not Patrick Roy…

image It was Andre “Red Light” Racicot, who accomplished the feat against Philadelphia on February 11. 1993.

Thanks to all who submitted their entries. I was overwhelmed with the responses so I will be doing another contest in January.
