Habby Birthday Andrei!

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
MONTREAL -- Exactly 32 years ago today, the Markov clan was swaddling their new bundle of joy, Andrei in blankets at the hospital in Voskresensk, Russia not knowing that their little guy was taking his first breaths on his way to NHL stardom. As the Habs’ birthday boy gets set to blow out the candles today, why not take a minute to see what else has gone down on this date in history.

The Year of the Horse

Having a Horse around is never a bad thing according to the Chinese zodiac. Horses are trustworthy, friendly and open-minded. They are good friends to have and will always be honest with you. Although they are good confidants, Horse people do enjoy their alone time and are usually independent people. Their sharpness makes them quick to pick up new skills and they are able to handle many tasks at one time.
