Habs single-game tickets sale going smoothly... finally
The original sale date was on Saturday Sept. 13th, but their new ticket sale system crashed the whole day because of the overwhelming demand. The sale was postponed to today at noon in order to meet the large demand.
Everything is currently going smoothly and most of the premium games are already sold-out (Leafs, Capitals, Penguins, etc.). If you're looking for tickets you must hurry or you'll be stuck with tickets for a Trashers or a Islanders game! Some tickets are going over $1,000 a pair on Ebay for the Nov. 22 game against Boston (the game is sold-out), which will be preceded by the retirement of Patrick Roy's 33 jersey.
The Bell Centre has the largest capacity in the National Hockey League: 21,273 seats. The Canadiens have played to 141 consecutive sellouts, and you can expect the streak will continue this season.
I managed to get 4 tickets vs Phoenix and 4 tickets vs Buffalo. Anyone else was able to get Habs tickets?
