The Ottawa Senators actually got booed when they were introduced before tonight’s game.
By the number of red Habs jerseys mulling around outside, and here in Scotiabank Place, that’s not surprising.
The Sens fans tried to drown them out, but you could still hear them loud and clear.
It’s a reasonably full house. There are plenty of empty rows, but overall a good crowd – helped by the unwelcome guests from Montréal.
You could get a pair of tickets online late this afternoon for $76 – good seats, too, since they were offering them at half price. The $76 is actually the price of a $65 ticket, with all those hidden charges they ding you with.
Those were the cheapest left; the $17.50 standing room and $20 cheapies long gone.
**Update: They announced a sellout of 20, 282 – pretty good considering there were seats for sale just a couple hours before game time. Lots of no-shows.**
