Subban will seek to build on his biggest NHL season yet, one in which he logged 60 points over 82 games.

Montreal Canadiens 2014-2015 News and Updates
11/18/15 - The Montreal Canadiens came away the victors in an overtime match against the Canucks on November 16. The Canucks had an early lead, getting ahead 3-0 until Lars Eller scored a short handed goal for the Candiens in the night minute of the second period. The Canadiens found their momentum after that, with goals from Max Pacioretty and Tomas Fleishcmann to tie the game, sending it into overtime. David Deshamais scored in overtime to give the Canadiens the victory. However, they were unable to do the same when they played the Coyotes on the 19, losing 3-2. The Canadiens play a home-home series against the Islanders on the 20 and 22, and you can still get tickets for both games starting at $43.
11/11/15 - With a record of 13-3-2, the Montreal Canadiens lead the Atlantic Division. Despite this fact, they have been struggling lately. They have lost their most recent two games, against the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Colorado Avalanche, and they have had trouble starting another winning streak. The Canadiens clearly have what it takes to dominate the competition, so they just need to regain their momentum. They have three upcoming home matches, so maybe they will be able to turn things around then. Up next, the Canadiens will be hosting the Vancouver Canucks on November 16th. Afterward, they will host the Arizona Coyotes on the 19th. Tickets are available starting at $40.
11/4/15 - The new overtime regulations in the NHL have not come easy for many teams. Tuesday evening, the Montreal Canadiens had their first experience with the three-on-three format, and it took just 34 seconds for their opponents to score the deciding goal. Despite the loss, the Canadiens are making the most out of the experience. “We end up losing the puck and that’s the No. 1 key. But I’m sure we’ll learn from it,” remarked Coach Michel Therrien. Montreal will host the Bruins this Saturday, Nov. 7, at the Bell Centre. A few tickets are still available for that game. After that, they will have four days off to rest before visiting Pittsburgh on Wednesday.
10/28/15 - When you play hockey, you have to be ready for just about anything. For one Montreal Canadiens player, he has been able to accomplish that by training in mixed martial arts! That’s right, backup goalie Mike Condon has found his success in the NHL by getting into shape with the help of Scott Ream, an MMA fighter. The main goal of training was to help him learn to be able to think and make decisions when the body is fully stressed, a skill Condon isn’t taking for granted. “I have seen what a privilege this is,” he stated. The Canadiens are welcoming the Jets this Sunday, Nov. 1, at the Bell Centre. Tickets are available for $43.
10/21/15 - After beating the St. Louis Blues 3-0 Tuesday night, the Montreal Canadiens have now won six games in a row. Carey Price’s goal tending played a crucial role throughout the game; he made 38 saves to keep the opponents scoreless. One notable event in the game was the first fight for the Canadiens this season. Nathan Beaulieu and Steve Ott went at it in the second quarter after a goal from Alexander Semin helped the Canadiens take the lead to 2-0. They will play in Buffalo this Friday, but this Saturday, Oct. 24, Montreal will be hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Bell Centre. Tickets are on sale now for $67 and up.
10/12/15 - The Montreal Canadiens are looking red hot as they continue along their winning streak, adding two more victories to their record over the weekend. On Friday, they beat the Boston Bruins 4 – 2. Then, on Saturday, they trounced the Ottawa Senators 3 – 1. Both wins were on the road, making the Canadiens look even more formidable heading into their next matchup against the New York Rangers. They’ll face the Rangers at home this Thursday, October 15, and will look to maintain their perfect streak. Tickets to Thursday’s game at Bell Centre start at $85 and are selling quickly, so be sure to scoop yours up now before they’re gone for good!
10/7/15 - The Montreal Canadiens beat the Toronto Maple Leafs in their season opener on October 7. The Canadiens got on the board first with a goal by Max Pacioretty in the first period. However, Toronto equalized early in the second period on a power play. The Canadiens scored twice in the third period to win the game, with another goal by Pacioretty and one by Alex Galchenyuk. Goalie Carey Price helped the offense by having 36 saves, which helped the Canadiens snag the victory despite being outshot by the Maple Leafs. The Canadiens head to Boston to play the Bruins on October 10. You still have a chance to catch the Canadiens play lives, with ticket prices starting at $24.
9/16/15 - They weren’t the first team to suffer a defeat at the hands of Tampa Bay in last year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs, but the Montreal Canadiens sure felt the sting in Game 6. After coming up short of the ultimate prize, the Canadiens return to the ice in 2015 with the hope of returning to the postseason once again. They tallied a strong 50-22-10 record last year, earning home ice advantage throughout the first two rounds of the playoffs. It wasn’t quite enough to get the job done, and so Montreal returns to the drawing board as they attempt to figure out the winning formula. They’ll be hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs in preseason competition this Tuesday, and you can get seats at the Bell Centre starting at just $16!
5/14/15 - The Montreal Canadiens have officially been eliminated from the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs. After a rocky start seeing them take three consecutive losses, two of which on their own rink, the odds were not in their favor. That did not stop the Canadiens from trying, however, and they very nearly pulled it off. Since the Tampa Bay Lightning had three wins, Montreal needed to win every remaining matchup of the round. When they managed to score six times on May 7th's game, it looked like they very well may pull off the impossible. Sure enough, they followed their incredible away game win with a less impressive, but still very important, 1-2 victory. Unfortunately, that is where their luck ended and their season finished with a disappointing 1-4 loss on May 12th on the Lightning's rink.
5/5/15 - After dropping the first two home games of their second-round series versus Tampa Bay, the Montreal Canadiens know that they now must win at least two on the road in order to advance to the Stanley Cup Playoff semifinals. The Lightning managed to pick up a win in Game 1 in the second overtime, with Nikita Kucherov netting the winner two minutes in. They took Game 2 behind four power play goals, including two from Kucherov who has dominated the early portion of the series in scoring. The Canadiens will travel for Games 3 and 4 to take place at Amalie Arena in Tampa this week. Tickets are on sale now to be a part of the action live, with seats starting at just $57!
4/28/15 - It took them six games, but the Montreal Canadiens finally ended the Ottawa Senators’ season, closing out their first-round playoff series on Sunday night with a 2-0 shutout victory on their opponent’s home ice. Carey Price stopped all 43 of the Sentors’ shots on goal, picking up a Montreal offense that managed only 20 shots by comparison. Brendan Gallagher scored first for the Canadiens in the opening period, and P.K. Subban assisted on a Max Pacioretty goal in the closing moments as Montreal advanced to Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They will await the winner of the Tampa Bay/Detroit series, which will kick off at the Bell Centre in Quebec later this week. Secure your seats now! Prices start at $116, but ticket supplies are limited!
4/20/15 - After finishing the regular season atop the Atlantic Division, the Montreal Canadiens were ready to open the Stanley Cup Playoffs with strong momentum. That energy has been on full display through the first three games of their opening series, as the Candiens have rolled out to a 3-0 lead over the Ottawa Senators. Dale Weise has been the star for Montreal thus far, putting in a pair of goals including the game-winner in overtime from the left faceoff circle, lifting his team to a 2-1 victory and a commanding series lead. The Canadiens will try for the four-game sweep on Wednesday night as they play visitor once again at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ontario. Tickets are on sale now starting at $104, but don’t delay because supplies won’t last long!
4/13/15 - Finishing with the second-best record in the NHL Eastern Conference, the Montreal Canadiens have earned themselves home ice advantage in the first round. They will be taking on the Ottawa Senators, who scrapped and ultimately managed to fight their way past the Boston Bruins to make the postseason. The Canadiens closed the regular season with a three-game winning streak to match Ottawa’s, so momentum should be a non-factor when the two teams face off beginning April 15th at the Bell Centre in Montreal. Can Max Pacioretty and P.K. Subban lead the Canadiens to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs? Be a part of the action for Game One, with ticket prices starting at just $95! Secure your seats now, as supplies are limited!
4/10/15 - The Montreal Canadiens were in strong form when they beat the Florida Panthers on Easter Sunday, ending their three game losing streak. The team was able to score four points for the win even without leading scorer Max Pacioretty, who left the game early on with an injury. Tomas Plekanec, Brendan Gallagher, Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau, and Devante Smith-Pelly stepped up and scored for the team. Heading into the final two games of the regular season, the Canadiens remain in first place in the Atlantic Division with two points ahead of the Tampa Bay Lightning. They play against the Red Wings on the 9th for the final home game (ticket prices start at $103) before heading to Toronto on the 11th for the last game before the playoffs (tickets starting at $166).
3/26/15 - The Montreal Canadiens' three game winning streak came to an end when they lost 3-2 during overtime against the Nashville Predators on March 24th. Nashville got on the board first with a goal during the first period. However, the Canadiens had a strong second period, with an unassisted goal by Brendan Gallagher early in the period and another goal by David Desharnais at 12:42. Montreal held the lead for awhile, until the Predators tied the game, leading to overtime play during which the Predators scored. Despite the loss, the Canadiens are the first team in the league to reach 100 points, which keeps them in the front running for the Presidents' Trophy. The Canadiens will look to add more points when they play the Jets on the 26th, with tickets starting at $104.
3/17/15 - The Montreal Canadiens are currently the Atlantic Division leading team, but their loss against the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night isn’t helping them solidify that spot. The game started off in the Canadiens favor, being up two goals as the first half was coming to a close. However, Max Pacioretty from the Senators pummeled two goals into the net in approximately two minutes and eleven seconds, tying the game to end the half. The Senators then came out with fight in their blood during the second half and scored three additional goals in the third. Carey Price, the Canadiens goalie was having an off night and the whole team suffered from it. See if they can recover from the loss when they play Carolina Hurricanes at home on March 19. Get your tickets starting at $88 a piece.
3/11/15 - Last week's loss against the San Jose Sharks was a terrible blow to the Montreal Canadiens. It seems they are having a hard time getting their momentum back because they have lost three more times since then, only taking a single 2-0 victory against the Arizona Coyotes. First they played the top team in the entire league, the Anaheim Ducks, and then the Canadiens had to face the Tampa Bay Lightning that is right on their heels. As it stands, the Canadiens maintain a single point lead in the standings, but that will change soon if they cannot get their energy back on the ice. They have one more home game, against the Ottawa Senators, before a series of away games against some very potent opponents. Tickets start at $71.
3/4/15 - Things were going well for the Montreal Canadiens. They were in the lead in the Atlantic Division and were up to four consecutive wins. No one was expecting the top team to be completely shut out on their March 2nd game, especially to a fifth place team in the Pacific Division, the San Jose Sharks, and on the heels of shutting out the Maple Leafs. The Canadiens must have just had a bad day, but luckily they managed to hold on to their lead in the division. They cannot afford any more games like that however. Plus, they will not return to Montreal until March 10th, and even then, it is against the second place team, the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Canadiens certainly have their work cut out for them in the next couple weeks.
2/25/15 - The Montreal Canadiens completed a swap with Anaheim on Tuesday, sending rookie Jiri Sekac to the Ducks in exchange for forward Devante Smith-Pelly. The trade involved two talented young players, but Montreal’s need for added toughness and physicality in the corners ultimately led to the transaction. The Canadiens are not expected to make many blockbuster moves prior to the March 2nd deadline, instead making minor tweaks to keep their hold on first place in the East. Recent victories over Columbus and St. Louis have helped them maintain their edge in the standings, but with just three points separating them from Tampa Bay, the Canadiens will need to keep on winning. They’ll hit the road on Thursday for another showdown with the Blue Jackets, and you can be a part of the action for as low as $5!
2/20/15 - Tied for first place in the Eastern Conference, the Montreal Canadiens will try to use their next two home games to build a lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Perhaps bigger than the impact in the standings, the Canadiens suffered another injury in their loss to the Senators on Wednesday, as defenseman Alexei Emelin was knocked out of the game by a hard collision with Ottawa wing Mark Stone. The loss comes on the heels of an injury to Sergei Gonchar on Saturday versus the Maple Leafs, which led to P.K. Subban playing a career-high 35:21 to fill the void. The Canadiens will rally the troops to face the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday, and you can still be a part of the action. A select number of tickets is available from $76, so act now!
2/13/15 - The Montreal Canadiens have bounced back after losing two games to open February, winning three straight to close within a single point of the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Atlantic Division. After pounding the New Jersey Devils 6-2, Montreal took down the Bruins at home before rallying to defeat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 in overtime. Despite a slow start versus the Flyers, Montreal found their energy in the third period, scoring the tying goal with minutes left in regulation. David Desharnais scored the game-winner on an assist from Andrei Markov, ending the extra session in just over three minutes of play. The Canadiens will take on the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday before facing off with Toronto on Saturday night. Tickets are still available for the Bell Centre starting at $179, but they won’t last long!
2/5/15 - After rattling off five straight wins to close out January, the Montreal Canadiens have dropped two straight games, suffering 3-2 setbacks to both the Arizona Coyotes and Buffalo Sabres. The Buffalo loss was particularly stinging, as the Sabres had not won since 2014—and only managed 18 shots on goal to Montreal’s 34, but it was enough to hand the Canadians their 15th regulation defeat of the season. Coach Michel Therrien of Montreal conceded that his team was not alert on defensive assignments to begin the game. “It wasn’t a lack of effort,” he reasoned, “It was a lack of focus.” The Canadiens wil host the New Jersey Devils at the Bell Centre on Saturday night, and you can be a part of the action with tickets starting at $100.
1/29/15 - When the Montreal Canadiens took on the New York Rangers, at first it seemed they were perfectly matched. Only one point was scored in the entire game, but that was all it took for the Canadiens to come away with the win, their fourth in a row. There were less than five minutes left on the clock in the final period when Max Pacioretty, assisted by Dale Weise and Alexei Emelin, put Montreal on the board. Despite so few making it into the goal, Montreal took 26 shots and New York took 24. With 31-13-3, the Canadiens are just barely behind the top ranked team in the Atlantic Division. The top two teams have the same number of wins, so Montreal's next couple games really matter. They start by playing the Washington Capitals on Jan. 31st. Tickets start at $122.
1/21/15 - The Montreal Canadiens beat the New York Islanders 6-4 on their last outing Saturday, Jan. 17. For the sixth time, Tomas Plenkanec scored four points in one game by assisting in two of the goals and scoring two himself. The Canadiens' victory was further helped by goals from P.K. Subban, Dale Weise, and Alex Galchenyuk, with Desharmais scoring two goals as well. The first goal happened only 1.56 minutes into the match during a power play, and the Canadiens continued to dominate for the rest of the game. This win came after a loss on Thursday against the Ottawa Senators. The Canadiens next face the Nashville Predators on Tuesday, followed by a week of rest before they meat the Dallas Stars on Tuesday, Jan. 27. Tickets remain on sale, starting at $57.
1/13/15 - One of the better teams in the Atlantic Division is the Montreal Canadiens. So far, they have brought their record to 26-12-3, and are currently ranked second. Against the Penguins, they were hoping to keep things rolling, but it was not meant to be. They ended up losing in overtime 2-1. Montreal had a hard time at containing Sidney Crosby, which hindered their chances late down the stretch. Max Pacioretty did everything he could to keep the Canadiens in it, but it was not enough. They will have to regroup after this close loss, which is something they are capable of doing. Next up for them is a great game against Columbus. Both have talented players who can score quickly, so it should be a fun game for the fans.
1/8/15 - The Montreal Canadiens' six game winning streak came to an end at home during their last match against the Tampa Bay Lightening on Jan. 6th. The 4-2 loss began with a goal by the Canadiens' Dale Weise in the 15th minute of the first period. However, in the second period the Lightening tied it early in the second period and kept scoring. Max Pacioretty scored the second Canadien goal late in the third period, and it was not enough for a victory. Canadien goalie Carey Price made 32 saves, but the Lightening still out shot and out scored the team. The Canadiens will work on starting another winning streak when they meet the Pittsburgh Penguins at home on the 10th (tickets starting at $141) before hitting the road again to visit the Columbus Blue Jackets and Ottowa Senators on the 14th and 15th respectfully.
12/31/14 - The Montreal Canadiens beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1 on Monday, December 29, helping them to lead the series 2-0 and bringing them to a three game winning streak. Goalie Carey Price was able to stop 28 of the Hurricanes' shots on goal, helping the team to victory. The offense assisted his effort by scoring three goals, thanks to Jiri Sekac, Lars Eller, and Max Pacioretty. Sekac and Eller scored in the second period, while Pacioretty's goal came in the final minute of the game to an empty net, ensuring victory for the team. The Canadiens head to a three game road trip, meeting with the Florida Panthers on December 30, followed by games with the New Jersey Devils on the 2nd (tickets starting at $34) and the Pittsburgh Penguins on the 3rd (tickets starting at $5).
12/25/14 - The Montreal Canadiens beat the Ottawa Senators 4-1 on Saturday, December 20, keeping their winning season in tact, and ending a 4-1-0 five game home stand. Their record is now 21-11-1, and they are 1st in the Atlantic Division. They meet the New York Islanders next on December 23rd, where they will look to have a fifth straight win. The Canadiens have won most of their games at home, so the Islanders will be their first chance to improve their performance during away games. The Canadiens are coming off a strong winning streak, and have won two straight games at Nassau Coliseum in New York, so they have a strong chance for a win. After the break for the holidays, the Canadiens will continue their four game road trip, visiting the Carolina Hurricanes on December 29. Tickets are still on sale, starting at $17.
12/18/14 - After besting the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 on Tuesday, the Montreal Canadiens are on a three-game winning streak, bringing their record to 20-10-2 and ranking them 2nd in the Atlantic division, second only to the Anaheim Ducks. The win was thanks in part to forward Alex Galchenyuk, who accomplished his first hat trick, and left wing Max Pacioretty, who assisted Galchenyuk on all three goals. The Canadiens next take on the Ducks at home, a team that Montreal rightly knows not to underestimate. Anaheim is fresh off their first loss in 7 games, and will likely be fighting to reinstate their dominance in the league. Tickets are still available to see the Canadiens battle the Ducks in person, with prices as low as $89 per seat.
12/12/14 - The Montreal Canadiens have finally ended their losing streak when they played the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. Despite having an excellent season, Montreal was in a slump, their last win being on the 1st of the month. Both teams failed to score in the first period and both managed only a single point in the second. Then, in the final period, Montreal shut out the Canucks while scoring twice. A strong win at 1-3 brings the team to 18-10-2, firmly in the 3rd spot for the Atlantic Division and close behind the leaders. The Canadiens will be looking to start another winning streak as they continue their long series of home games. Next, they will take on the Los Angeles Kings and tickets are available for $89.
12/3/14 - In an incredibly close game on Monday, the Montreal Canadiens were able to just barely edge out the Colorado Avalanche with 4-3. Every point was answered all the way until the final period, with the game tied at the end of the first and second. Both team even got almost exactly the same number of shots too, with the Canadiens shooting 30 over the Avalanche’s 29. Also, the plays were well spread out among Montreal’s team with no single player getting more than one point or assist. Now at 17-7-2 and 2nd in the Atlantic Division, Montreal will be taking on the Minnesota Wild next as they continue their away games. They will be returning to Montreal on the 9th and tickets are still available starting at $56.
11/25/14 - The Montreal Canadiens are ranked first in the Atlantic Division at 16-6-1, and any loss hits them hard. The New York Rangers trounced the Canadiens last Sunday in a 5-0 shutout. Montreal has 61 total goals for the season, an average of 2.59 per game which puts them in the bottom third of the league. Where the Canadiens shine is in their goaltending, giving up an average of 2.36 goals per game, which puts them in the top third of the league. Montreal has a great shot at the playoffs, and you’ll want to get tickets to support them in their Stanley Cup goal. This coming weekend, they face the Buffalo Sabres in Buffalo on Friday. Then both teams come to Montreal for a rematch on Saturday.
11/18/14 - The Montreal Canadiens are having a great season, with a 14-4-1 record putting them 1st in the Atlantic Division. They’ve won their last six games and seem to be unstoppable. This their longest winning streak in more than four years. On Thursday, November 20, they’ll be hosting the St. Louis Blues at Bell Centre on home ice before going out on the road for three games, including back to back games over the weekend against the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers. Sergei Gonchar, who was acquired last week by the Canadiens is a good addition to their defense, and even though Montreal will be facing very strong teams over the next week, they’ve been showing they can win and will work hard to give their fans a great game. Tickets will go fast as they continue to show, so get them now!
11/12/14 - At 11-4-1, the Montreal Canadiens are 2nd in the Atlantic Division, and their general manager has made some major changes to the roster. You’ll want to come out and catch the new player Sergei Gonchar, who comes to the Canadiens from the Dallas Stars. Going into Thursday’s game against the Bruins, Montreal is on a 3-game winning streak, and they’d like to keep that going. Get tickets now for Saturday’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers. Gonchar’s premier match will be against the Bruins. He’s a great addition to the team with his power play and assist experience. The Canadiens need the support of their fans to keep their momentum going through the season to help them get into the playoffs and work toward the Stanley Cup.
11/5/14 - At 8-4-1, the Montreal Canadiens are in second place in the Atlantic Division. They’re off to a confident start to their season with hopes of making the playoffs to the Stanley Cup. The Canadiens need their fans to cheer them on to victory to break the current losing streak of three games. The most recent loss was to the Chicago Blackhawks, who scored one unmatched goal in the first two periods, then blew the Canadiens away by scoring three goals in the third period. The Canadiens face the Minnesota Wild on Saturday, then on Tuesday, November 11, they play the Winnipeg Jets. You can see them at Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec when you get your tickets now! Support your team and see great hockey when you come out to cheer them on!
10/29/14 - The Canadiens are hoping to continue their home-game winning streak in the game against the Calgary Flames this Sunday. Leading the league, Montreal fans are certainly enjoying the season thus far, but with the bottleneck that’s formed among the middle-ranking teams, there’s no telling exactly who will break free and shake up the competitive landscape. With the Flames returning after a disappointing shootout loss at home, the Montreal Canadiens can expect a fight to protect their home turf. Ranked 8 and 2, Montreal is riding the wave of adrenaline from previous victories. Harnessing and directing that excitement towards a continued team effort on the ice could be the key to holding onto their standing as league leaders. Sure to be a competitive night, tickets for this game are going fast. However, tickets are still available starting at $60 a seat, with several seating options to choose from.
Last season, the Montreal Canadiens got closer to the Cup than ever since the last time the franchise won the trophy a distant ten seasons ago. After finishing 3rd in the Atlantic Division and 4th in the East, Montreal took NHL fans for quite a ride in the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs. They swept Tampa Bay Lightning in Round 1 and followed up with a Game 7 win over archival Boston Bruins. The Habs fell to the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference Finals when net minder Carey Price suffered a season-ending knee injury. Can the Canadiens take La Belle Province one step further in the 2014-2015 season and bring home Lord Stanley’s Cup?
Despite losing Brian Gionta (captain) and Josh Gorges to Buffalo this summer, with a healthy Sochi gold medalist in goal and one-two punch P.K. Subban and Andre Markov on defense, the blue line remains steadfast. Forwards Max Pacioretty, Brendan Gallagher and Alex Galchenyuk will be looked to provide leadership when the Habs make a push for playoffs for a third consecutive season.
The Montreal Canadiens eagerly await the 2014-2015 season poised for a return trip to playoffs, but they’ll have to get through an 82-game slate first. Montreal opens their schedule on the road, at the Toronto Maple Leafs on Oct. 8. The Habs will not play their first home game until Oct. 16, when they host the bitter Boston Bruins seeking vengeance for their Round 2 exit. A can’t-miss game appears Nov. 29 when the Buffalo Sabres come to town with Gionta and Gorges in tow. The New York Rangers step into Bell Centre on Oct. 25 and the defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings invade Quebec on Dec 16.
5/26/14 – Bad blood between the Habs and Rangers continued to boil in Game 3. Brendon Prust left Derek Stepan with a broken jaw that warranted a two-game suspension after the NHL reviewed the open-ice hit. Also, Rangers’ forward Daniel Carcillo got physical with Canadiens’ linesman Scott Driscoll while he was taken to the penalty box and was handed a 10-game suspension of his own. Montreal went on to win the game at Madison Square Garden in overtime; but, were not so lucky in Sunday’s Game 4, losing 3-2 to the New York Rangers (also in OT). Down 3-1 in the series, Montreal heads back home in a do-or-die Game 5 (get-in $142) Tuesday. The average price of Montreal Canadiens tickets for the meeting are down 52 percent since the start of the series, so grab your Canadiens playoff tickets now and support the Habs as they try and avoid elimination!
5/20/14 – The Montreal Canadiens punched their ticket to the Eastern Conference Finals after taking Game 7 from the No.1 seeded Boston Bruins last week. Once it was determined that the Habs would face the Rangers in round three, Montreal was awarded home-ice advantage having recorded more points in the regular season than the NYR. Bad news hit the locker room Monday when it was determined that goalie Carey Price will miss the series due to a lower-body injury suffered in Montreal’s series-opening 7-2 loss Saturday. Dustin Tokarski replaced arguably the best player on the Canadiens’ roster making 27 saves Monday night, but it wasn’t enough as the Rangers beat the Habs 3-1 to take a 2-0 series lead. If we don’t see a sweep in New York, the Canadiens will return to the Bell Centre for Game 5 next Tuesday (get-in $236).
5/12/14 – The Canadiens will look to even the series tonight (7:30PM) against archrival Boston Bruins and avoid elimination in Game 6 at Bell Centre-QC. Déjà vu?

After leading this series 2-1 after the first three games, Boston came back, dominating defensively and outscoring the Canadiens 5-2.

Game 3 in Montreal was electric from the beginning with a pre-game presentation that included a 3-D lighting of the ice which some compared to the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympic Games and one in which Canadiens’ Rene Bourque opened the scoring 11 seconds in (it was the fastest playoff goal ever scored at Bell Centre).
4/17/14 – The Habs are Canada’s only hope to hoist the Stanley Cup at the end of the season. Montreal will face the East’s most improved team, Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round. The playoff dark horses won a thrilling Game 1 last night on the road; overtime was expected as three of the four regular-season games between the two teams reached OT. If opening night is any indication of what is to come, grab your Montreal Canadiens playoff tickets now as it should be one of the best series in the Division Semifinals round. Game 3 (avg. $307) Sunday will be the first chance for Canadiens fans to catch their team in playoff action at Bell Centre-QC; only 76 tickets remain with a get-in price of $118. Game 4 Tuesday is a bit cheaper (avg. $277).
4/8/14 – The Habs locked up a postseason berth with five games remaining; but, there are still three pivotal games left on the Montreal Canadiens schedule as they fight for home-ice advantage in the first round of the NHL playoffs. Any combination of Habs’ wins and Tampa Bay Lightning losses adding up to two, will give Montreal the second seed in the Atlantic Division and thus home-ice advantage. Cheer on the Canadiens in their final two home games – Thursday vs. New York Islanders (min. $57) and Saturday vs. New York Rangers (min. $118). Your support could be the difference in the number of home matches that the Habs will play at Bell Centre-QC during the postseason.
4/2/14 – Thanks to losses by New Jersey and Washington, the Canadiens clinched a postseason berth Tuesday night. The news came the same evening Montreal dropped a 1-3 game to Tampa Bay, ending a five-game winning streak. Now tied for second with the Lightning in the Atlantic Division, the April 2 matchup was a likely preview of the first round of the NHL playoffs where the No.2 and No.3 teams in each division meet. With home-ice advantage on the line, the Canadiens will look to finish off the regular-season strong.
3/27/14 – Montreal has played three games in four nights and won out with victories at Toronto Saturday, against rival Boston, and in front of a home crowd over Buffalo. The Canadiens will look to use their momentum on their upcoming four-game road trip. Montreal’s shutout win over the Sabres was not only a confidence booster but also a special night for two players - Max Pacioretty who scored his 100th career goal and former Sabre Daniel Briere who added another.
3/18/14 – Former Canadien goalie Patrick Roy returned to Montreal’s Bell Centre Tuesday as the head coach of the Colorado Avalanche. With just six regular-season games remaining at home, the Montreal Canadiens are fourth in the Eastern Conference with 81 points. After winning a pair of games this weekend, the Candiens greatly improved their playoff position (in wild-card spot following previous three game losing streak). In the 13 games remaining on the Montreal Canadiens schedule, the teams has to book 11 points to be sure of a playoff berth for the second consecutive year. If the NHL Playoffs started today, the Habs would face Tampa Bay in the first round.
3/10/14 - The Habs gave up prospect Sebastien Collberg and a conditional second-round pick to get Thomas Vanek from the New York Islanders Wednesday. The high-scoring left wing had 21 goals and 32 assists in 60 games and was the most sought after player during the 2014 trade deadline. Montreal, currently third in the East, have to make the postseason for picks to exchange hands. The Candiens were shut out by the San Jose Sharks Saturday night and will look to get back on track against the newly best-in-the-East, Boston Bruins. Montreal Canadiens vs Boston Bruins tickets are the most expensive regular-season game remaining at Bell Centre-QC, averaging $257.
3/3/14 – We’re not sure if regulation time is in the Canadiens’ vocabulary as of late. Montreal has played in two overtime games and participated in one shootout since the Olympic break, winning the last two against Pittsburgh and Toronto (in that order) in dramatic fashion. If history is to repeat itself, Montreal Canadiens’ fans are in for a real treat as the likelihood for more hockey than what you paid for is high. Unfortunately that chance won’t come until Mar 12 as Montreal will play their next four on the road against Pacific Division foes – Los Angeles (3/3), Anaheim (3/5), Phoenix (3/6), and San Jose (3/8).
2/26/14 - OK now we are talking - Montreal will hope Team Canada goaltender Carey Price continues where he left off in the Olympics as the team sits in 3rd place in the Atlantic Division and with a nice run could wrestle away first from Boston who they play March 12 at home and March 24 in Boston. Montreal Canadiens tickets for these must-see game start at just over $100 each. Montreal’s defense has been strong this season ranking as sixth best in Goals Against and third best in Penalty Kill Pct. Could it be a playoff preview?
2/21/14 – Seven Montreal Canadiens players represented their respective countries in the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics - Peter Budaj, Max Pacioretty, Alexei Emelin, Andrei Markov, Tomas Plekanec, P.K. Subban, and Carey Price. The rest of the roster returned to the ice Wednesday for practice following a 10-day break. Winger Travis Moen hopes to return when league play resumes; Moen missed Montreal's last two games before the break with a lower-body injury. Forward Alex Galchenyuk is also looking forward to his return after missing 15 games with a fractured hand. Montreal’s first game back at the Bell Centre-QC is next Wednesday against the Detroit Red Wings; Montreal Canadiens tickets start at $66 for the Atlantic Division showdown.
2/4/14 – In a trade with Vancouver yesterday, the Canadiens picked up Dale Weise in exchange for Raphael Diaz. The Forward had three goals, nine assists, and twelve points in forty-four games for Vancouver this year and will bring a rough-and-tough physical style of play to Montreal. The two teams will face each other Thursday night at the Bell Centre-QC; Vancouver Canucks vs. Montreal Canadiens tickets range from $66 - $378. Tonight’s game in Montreal versus the Calgary Flames is slightly cheaper, averaging $143 with a $48 get-in.
1/29/14 – Montreal’s win Tuesday night ended a season-high four-game losing streak. Carey Prices (2.44 GAA) stopped 36 shots for his third shutout of the year to halt Carolina’s four-game win streak. With six games to be played before the Olympics break (four at home), the Habs will look to improve their record in which they have won just four times in regulation in the last 22 games. The Canadiens should look to add a scorer and defenseman to their roster before the trade deadline in hopes of competing for a playoff spot. Montreal Canadiens tickets are averaging $243 for remaining 2014 games, sixth most expensive in the NHL.
Although the Montreal Canadiens finished on top of the Northeast Division last season, they exited early from the NHL Playoffs. As a No. 2 seed they were outplayed by the Ottawa Senators who advanced to the second round after a 6-1 victory in Game 5. The Montreal Canadiens roster did not see much activity this offseason; the signing of George Parros and Daniel Briere are the two notable additions. Can the Canadiens stay competitive with the addition of the Detroit Red Wings to an already competitive Division?

Of the two regular season matchups in Montreal between the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins, Canadiens tickets to the mid-Match game are the cheapest (avg. $239).
