The 1986–87 Montreal Canadiens season was the team's 78th season. The season involved being eliminated in the Prince of Wales Conference Final versus the Philadelphia Flyers 4 games to 2, in a series made famous by the pre-game brawl before game 6, after Ed Hospodar attacked Claude Lemieux for shooting a puck into the Flyers empty net at the end of the warmup
