Hockey fever rose another notch Tuesday when Canadiens fans showed their enthusiasm and support for their team by purchasing all available tickets to watch the 7th and decisive game of the Montreal Canadiens - Pittsburgh Penguins series on the Bell Centre's giant HD screens.
Over 20,000 tickets quickly vanished as the lucky ticket holders anxiously await all the excitement of this event which is arguably the most important moment in the history if team since its Stanley Cup championship in 1993. Clearly more than ever before, we are Canadiens.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
