5 Games to Get Excited For If You’re A Montreal Canadiens Fan

With the Draft on the horizon, the NHL announced the full 2022-23 regular season for all 32 teams on Wednesday, July 6th. Let’s break down five games to get excited for if you’re a Montreal Canadiens fan.

October 12 vs Toronto

It’s the first time the Habs are starting at home since 2013. No better opponent to open up the season against than your Original six rivals, the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Not only will the Habs be going up against the reigning Hart, Ted Lindsay, and Maurice “Rocket” Richard winner in Auston Matthews, but this may be the first NHL game for the top draft pick.

October 22 vs Dallas

The first Saturday night of the year comes against the Dallas Stars. You already know the Bell Centre will be rocking!

Last year, Montreal played Dallas twice and went 1-0-1. 5-3 victory at the American Airlines Center and losing on home ice, 4-3 in overtime.

December 21 at Colorado

The first time the Montreal Canadiens play against the defending Stanley Cup champions. Barring any big changes (at the time of writing this, Artturi Lehkonen is still an RFA), this will be Lehkonen’s first time back at the Bell Centre since Montreal traded him away on March 22nd.

January 17 vs Winnipeg

This kicks off the team’s longest homestand of the season, lasting five games, starting with the Winnipeg Jets. The remainder of the homestand is against the Panthers, Leafs, Bruins, and Red Wings. The last four games are against Atlantic division opponents, three of the four against Original six teams.

April 13 vs Boston

This is the last game of the regular season against a division rival, the Boston Bruins!

The Habs close out the season around the same way they opened the season, which is on home ice. Fans should get excited for this game as there is nothing better than beating your rival to close out the season.
