THIS IS IT
I have never been to a game at the Bell Centre. I have never been to an NHL playoff game....until tonight.
Today I travel to Montreal for the first time in seven years almost to the day. The last time I was in the city a guy by the name of Halak was tearing up the playoffs.
I've attended a handful of Habs games over the years in Ottawa, mostly losses. I can't even begin to imagine what tonight is going to be like. For me as a Habs fan, and as a sports fan, tonight might be the greatest night of my life (if the Habs win).
I'm so ready to experience the Bell Centre first hand during the playoffs. Plus today is a holiday so fans have extra time to get rowdy before the game.
Puck drops at 7:10...I drop in Montreal shortly before 5 PM.
Time to hit the road.
