CKLG AM Vancouver — Top Thirty Singles for Saturday April 18, 1975.
At the end of the 1974-75 regular season, the Vancouver Canucks finished #1 in their division with 86 points, earning their first ever berth in the NHL Playoffs.
So what if the Smythe (a.k.a. "Sweathog") Division was arguably the weakest in the league at the time – this was a scrappy, lunch-bucket team that had fought tooth-and-nail for every point, and they’d EARNED the right to compete in the post-season.
Dauntingly, their opponents were to be the legendary Montreal Canadiens. Although the Canucks surprised everyone by winning game 2 in Montreal, the Habs eventually took the series in 5 games.
Maybe not the most talented Canuck team to ever make it into the playoffs — but they were most definitely the first, and they had tons of heart!
