So, tonight you can tune in to the Canadiens vs. the Boston Bruins at 7 pm ET on RDS for the cost of your cable subscription.
Or a half-hour later, if you can tune in Indigo, you can check out a French-language pay-per-view celebration of the 58th birthday of Canadiens legend Guy Lafleur.
The hockey game you know about, the Canadiens hoping to end their one-game preseason losing streak.
Here’s a little more about the Lafleur thing, which will set you back 10 bucks in standard definition, $12 in HD:
Lafleur’s 58 years will be feted live by 800 guests from Mel’s Studio in Montreal, people the press release says are from all walks of life.
Four teams will test their knowledge of Lafleur in this love-in – Jean Béliveau will captain the Canadiens squad, with Gilbert Dionne, Raymond Bourque and Marcel Dionne respectively leading the Buffalo Sabres, Boston Bruins and Los Angeles Kings.
