The National Hockey League wrapped up a yearlong celebration of its 100th anniversary on Saturday with an outdoor game, above, between the Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators.

周六,加拿大全国冰球联盟以蒙特利尔加拿大人队(Montreal Canadiens)和渥太华参议员(Ottawa Senators)的一场户外比赛(上图),为该联盟为期一年的百年诞辰庆祝活动拉下了帷幕。

It commemorated a matchup between the teams on this day in 1917, when the first games in the league’s history were played. On the same night that the Canadiens beat the Senators, 7-4, the Montreal Wanderers defeated the Toronto Arenas, 10-9.

这场比赛是为了纪念这两支队伍在1917年的这一天举行的联盟历史上的首场比赛。在加拿大人队以7-4击败参议员队的那天晚上,蒙特利尔流浪者(Montreal Wanderers)还以10比9击败了多伦多阿里纳斯(Toronto Arenas)。

Now with 31 teams from South Florida to Vancouver, the N.H.L. started with four Canadian teams spread over less than 350 miles. The league was founded in a Montreal hotel in late November 1917, in the thick of World War I, when professional hockey was still a fairly new concept.

全国冰球联盟现在从南佛罗里达到温哥华,拥有31支球队,但在起步时只有距离不到350英里(约合560公里)的四支加拿大球队。1917年11月下旬第一次世界大战战火正酣的时候,联盟在蒙特利尔的一家酒店成立,在当时,职业冰球还是一个相当新颖的概念。

The Canadiens are now one of North America’s oldest professional sports franchises. The Arenas eventually became the Maple Leafs. And although the original Senators folded in 1934, the franchise returned as an expansion team in 1992.

加拿大人现在是北美历史最悠久的职业运动队之一。阿里纳斯后来改名多伦多枫叶队(Maple Leafs)。虽然最初的参议员队在1934年被合并,但是这支球队在1992年作为一个特许新编球队重回赛场。

But the Wanderers are a blip in N.H.L history. Their victory on opening night was their only win in the league. They lost their next five games and then quit the league after their arena burned down on Jan. 2, 1918.

不过,蒙特利尔流浪者队在联盟的历史上则是昙花一现。他们在开幕之夜取得的胜利是他们在联赛中获得的唯一胜利。他们输掉了接下来的五场比赛,1918年1月2日主球被烧毁后,就退出了联盟。
