According to CBC, the Montreal Canadiens honoured eight women's hockey players from Quebec who won a gold medal for Canada at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi prior to their game against the Detroit Red Wings at the Bell Centre on Wednesday night.

The players were forwards Melodie Daoust of Valleyfield, Caroline Ouellette of Montreal, Marie-Philip Poulin of Beauceville, defensemen Lauriane Rougeau of Beaconsfield and Catherine Ward of Montreal and goaltenders Charline Labonte of Boisbriand and Genevieve Lacasse of Montreal.

Assistant coach Danielle Goyette of St-Nazaire, who won back-to-back gold medals for Canada as a player at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City and the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Turin was also recognized.

Goyette was the first to be introduced, followed by the players in alphabetical order by their last name. Poulin was saved for last because of her two dramatic goals against the United States in the gold medal game.

The Red Wings beat the Canadiens 2-1 in overtime on a game winning goal by Swedish Olympic silver medal winning men's hockey player Gustav Nyquist.
