New Habs, New Season

The new 2012-13 Habs schedule is now up, including 7 preseason games beginning on Sept 23.

The annual West Coast swing, which I always look forward to, begins earlier this year with the boys in Calgary on Oct. 30, Edmonton on Nov. 1, and Vancouver on November 3rd.

They have more than four days off at Christmas which owners (probably reluctantly) agreed to years ago, as teams in the old days usually played Christmas night and were stuck in some hotel or on a train while their families waited for them to come home and open gifts. Owners, of course, didn’t care much about sentimentality back then.

Let’s just hope the league opens up on schedule instead of being in some sort of lockout mode.

Sept 23 Ottawa @ Montreal
Sept 24 Buffalo @ Montreal
Sept. 27 Montreal @ Ottawa
Oct. 2 Montreal @ Carolina (in Quebec)
Oct. 3 Carolina @ Montreal
Oct. 6 Boston @ Montreal
Oct. 7 N.J. @ Montreal

  1. Well.. January 12 will have at least two Habs fans in Dallas, but what really has my attention is the first weekend in February. I have never seen a game in Montreal, I dislike the Senators more than the Laffs, and… hmm, anyone considering a group event?

  2. Well… I’m game and the wife wants to go… she’s never been to Montreal, I’ve been twice, but never seen the Habs play there!
