MONTREAL - Canadiens fans, be sure to circle off October 10 on your calendar, as that night will mark the first game of the 2017-18 season at the Bell Centre. The Chicago Blackhawks will be the visitors.

Last year, Al Montoya and the Habs shut out the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins, 4-0.

The rest of the regular season schedule will be revealed on Thursday at 3:00 p.m. For now, we know that the Canadiens will take to the ice in Buffalo on October 5 for the Sabres' first home game, and again on October 7 for the Washington Capitals' home opener.
