All the way from the Rock (NL) to see our Habs beat the Bruins and the Avs this week. Great atmosphere at the Bell Centre, especially after a Habs goal. The boys are still moving through the gears, nowhere near a consistent 60 minutes yet, but hey, it's better than cheering for the Leafs!!

Don't be so condescending dust; I am in "the region" as prescribed by Rogers and the NHL. Forget hockey for a minute, I can't even subscribe to the channel!!!

I've subscribed to RDS to watch the Habs games for years but now Shaw tells me I can't get it here in Newfoundland. Anyone facing that problem? I tried to add it a couple of nights ago and again this evening in order to watch the preseason games....but it can't be done says the Shaw Direct rep! He said Rogers has disallowed the channel to be broadcast down here. I can't believe the CRTC would allow that!!

In answer to my own question, I think I found it: http://canadiens.nhl.com/club/schedule.htm ...but I thought RDS was out of the picture this year!

Quick question: where can I find the complete Hab's TV schedule for next season so I can determine the channels I need to subscribe to here in Newfoundland?
- Comment on Habs’ Emelin returns to Montreal for family reasons (2014-03-31 22:56:20)
My wife and I attended the game against the Panthers and will be heading over to Tampa to see the Habs take on the Bolts tomorrow (a well timed vacation). It's interesting to see the number of Habs fans attending these games; far more fans cheering for them than the home team. It's almost as cheap to fly down and watch the games as it is to buy tickets in Montreal! I was 3 rows back from ice level and paid $50 each for the tickets. But to be honest...with no more intensity than was diplayed in that game, 50 bucks was plenty to pay! I pity the poor sods dishing out $300+ bucks a seat to watch the product being delivered in some rinks...like Toronto, for example.

Agreed! Is it too much to expect a little objectivity from so called "professionals". They pretty much refer to the Leafs as "we".
- Comment on Habs’ Price won’t be ready to face Bruins (Video) (2014-03-12 09:00:55)
That gold medal cost our team dearly and when he does get back, expect him to be rusty for a few days...perhaps leading to another loss or two. They're ok for the moment, as long as those fighting for the last couple of positions continue to play poorly, but the boys can't afford to lose many more. I see the Bruins pouring it on tonight; can't see them losing 6 in a row against the Habs.

Agreed! I was a teenager when Big Pete played. He was my favorite player at the time. Remember that goal against the Russians?
