And the Canadiens, who are seeking their 16th championship since 1927, have had a decided edge over Chicago in their play- off meetings. The two clubs open their best- of-seven- final Sunday afternoon at the Forum with game two here Tuesday before the series shifts to Chicago for games next Thursday and Sunday. Going into this final, Montreal has won 10 series from the Hawks and have won 42 and lost 27 of the 71 games played between the two squads. The other two games ended in ties. More remarkable is the fact that the Canadiens have never yet tasted defeat in four Stanley Cup finals against Chicago.

Beliveau retired shortly after and, now, Richard has a chance to be the unique holder of the record.
