To commemorate the November 23 game against the New York Rangers, Marc Sirus, a well-known Montréal artist, seized on the 1979 Stanley Cup finals, when two teams faced off for the title.

 


“Face off” brings us back to a different Hockey era by preeminently featuring Ken Dryden’s bold and simple target-style mask and John Davidson’s shield-like mask. Staying true to their goalies’ time of glory, the artist treated the team’s logo and name to his personal touch. The dynamic composition includes iconic Montréal and New York landmarks.


Signed and numbered by the artist, the fifth artwork resulting from the collaboration honors both team’s legacy through typography and the spectacular saves of a legend among legends.
