Montreal Canadiens Opens Regular Season Tonight.
The Montreal Canadiens and the Toronto Maple Leafs will both open their regular season tonight at the Air Canada centre in Toronto.
Many veteran players will be out of the lineup on Montreal's side. Michael Cammalleri will serve his one-game suspension, defense mens Andrei Markov and Roman Hamrlik are recovering from injuries. Goaltender Carey Price could be sidelined by the flu and is a game-time decision.
With Price unavailable, Alex Auld should see action in front of Montreal's net tonight.
The Maple Leafs will turn the page tonight as they had an horrible season last year. A place in the playoffs is of course the ultimate objective but it won't be easy. The Eastern conference playoff race should be very disputed this season.
So let's all enjoy the return of ice hockey tonight.
