The 1993–94 Montreal Canadiens season was the club's 85th season of play. The defending Stanley Cup champions could not repeat, being eliminated in the Eastern Conference Quarter-finals by the Boston Bruins 4 games to 3. It was the last time at the Forum that the playoffs were played. In addition, it was the first time in eleven years, that the Canadiens did not get past the first round of the playoffs. [1]

Off-season[edit | edit source]

  • In the offseason, Patrick Roy signed a four year contract worth sixteen million dollars. [2]

Regular Season[edit | edit source]

For the season, Roy had 35 wins, 17 losses and 11 ties. Without him in net, the Canadiens had 6 wins, 12 losses and 3 ties. [3] The Canadiens ended the season with 3 wins and 9 losses in their last 12 games, including a 9-0 loss to the Detroit Red Wings. [4]
