Starting October 3, we shift the clock!

by Montreal Canadiens @CanadiensMTL / Press Release

MONTREAL (October 2, 2019) - Montreal Canadiens fans will need to change their clock a month earlier than official Daylight Saving Time. Contrary to the rest of the country, the time change will take effect on October 3, as all puck drops will start earlier.

Canadiens fans will get to watch the team's season opener in Carolina against the Hurricanes at 7:00 p.m. on October 3, which means that Youppi! will get to enjoy an extra half hour of sleep Thursday night, after the game.

As announced by the club earlier this year, puck drop for all Canadiens games at the Bell Centre will take place at 7:00 p.m., with the exception of five matchups which will begin at 7:30 p.m. (November 5, November 20, November 28, December 11 and January 15), and afternoon games which are held as part of the annual Family Weekend at the Bell Centre. The move is part of a change led by the NHL.
