It’s Canadiens schedule magnet night tonight at the Bell Centre! Surely you kept yours from 2002-03? (Habs know the new stainless steel fridges aren’t magnetic, right?)
The schedule-maker has piled it on to end the first month of the season.
Phoenix at the Bell Centre tonight, followed by the Islanders on Wednesday. Then the Canadiens visit the Island Friday night and scoot home to play Florida on Saturday. By this time next week, 11 games will be in the books. And we can begin drawing some preliminary conclusions about the team we’ll be following through another 71.
• Dave Stubbs on Alex Kovalev and Vladislav Tretiak teaming up for their respective charitable foundations. And a short Kovalev video discussing the importance to him of helping needy kids
• Red Fisher on the woeful Senators
• François Gagnon on Andrei Markov
• Marc de Foy on the week ahead
• Martin Leclerc on Scott Gomez
A tribute, en français, to the great Maurice Richard:
