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.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
