Live-blog lives!

Hockey Inside/Out is pleased to announce the return, for a sixth straight Canadiens season, of the live game blog.
This will come as welcome news to literally dozens of HIO fans who have speculated about what Mike Boone’s imminent departure from The Gazette might mean for the website.

Boone may be riding off into the sunset – metaphorically; he’s actually driving off to the suburbs – on Aug. 31.

But on at least 82 occasions – and maybe more, inshallah, if the Canadiens make the playoffs – the happy retiree will be hunched over a keyboard, pretending to be a productive member of society.

A prolonged period of intense negotiations between HIO executives and Boone’s agent, Otto Yerass of the sports management firm Dewey, Skruwem & Howe, has resulted in an agreement that guarantees the continuation of the live game blog and the post-game About Last Night feature.

The Canadiens are scheduled to begin their exhibition season on Sunday, Sept. 23, with a 7 p.m. game against the Ottawa Senators at the Bell Centre.

HIO’s live blogger will be there … if there is a there.
