Posted October 14, 2018 05:59:53 As the NHL season comes to a close, I’m looking forward to a great deal of reading about the games that were played and the players who were there.
But the one thing I am not looking forward in the beginning is watching the games in person.
I will be rooting for the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night in their playoff game against the Boston Bruins, because of my fascination with the night-time action and the fact that the first night of the regular season is often the most exciting one of the year.
The Canadiens were in the midst of a long playoff run that included three straight Stanley Cups.
They played their first playoff game at home in Montreal in November, and had just come off a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers at Bell Centre.
The game was a sellout, and many fans turned out to cheer on their team as they made their way to the arena for the opening faceoff.
Montreal had a good chance to win the game, but goalie Carey Price stopped 22 of 23 shots and Montreal went on to lose in five games to finish the regular-season.
In a way, that’s a blessing.
It is a rare thing to see a team win a Stanley Cup in a year that was dominated by the Flyers, and a team like the Montreal Blue Jackets have done it three times in the past nine seasons.
The Blue Jackets won the Cup in 2001, 2002 and 2003, all with Carey Price as their starting goaltender.
Montreal won it in 2010, again with Price as starter.
And this year, Price will have the last laugh, too, as he leads the NHL in wins and goals against average with an 0.922.
That’s a great number, but when you consider that the Canadiens are playing against a Philadelphia Flyers team that has won eight straight and has been in the playoffs for three straight years, it might not be such a big deal.
But the Blue Jackets were playing in a new rink that was not nearly as well-designed as Montreal’s.
There were no retractable roof, which is not something that you want to see if you want your team to win a Cup.
It was just too big and too big a building to be used as a rink.
There were some issues with the seating in Montreal, and some fans complained that the sound of the arena was louder than the stadium.
There was also a rumor that a new, smaller rink would be built in Philadelphia.
The new building was never built, and the arena is now a converted football field.
The atmosphere in Montreal was much better, though, and Price was able to hold his own in the faceoff circle.
It is hard to find a reason to miss that one.
As the game started, the Flyers were down by two goals.
It looked like they would be out in front by then.
But it was not to be.
The first period started out very well for Montreal.
The Flyers scored twice in the first minute of the second period.
The Flyers were on the power play in the second.
They scored twice on a power play.
It wasn’t long before the game ended in a 2-2 draw.
That was a bit of a shock to me, because Montreal had already won two games in a row in that period.
But it was good to see the fans cheering on the Canadiens on their home ice, and I was glad that the game was over soon.
The games are a lot different on the road, so there are a few different factors that you need to take into account.
There are so many different things that are out there that make it tough to watch games in the home arena.
There is the fact, for instance, that you are playing in front of a lot of people in the crowd.
There are also the things that you do not want to happen.
For example, you have to remember that you have been on the ice in front a lot more than in the old Bell Centre, which was a big difference.
When you play in front 60,000 fans at home, it can be very intimidating.
In Montreal, the fans were not only loud, they were loud and they were not afraid to get their hands on the puck.
The fans also showed their support for their team.
The fans went into the game wearing jerseys with the number 1 and the number 4, and they wore it the entire way to that game.
There will always be that element of a home crowd that wants to see their team win.
You need to understand that this is a new building.
They have to be very careful with the noise level.
There might be a couple hundred fans there who are going to get into the room to cheer you on, but it is not going to be the kind of atmosphere you want when you are going into a home rink.
You also need to remember the history of the building.
It has been a home building for a
