The visiting Canadiens begin a journey they hope concludes with their first Stanley Cup finals appearance in 22 years when they try to avoid their fifth straight season-opening loss to the Maple Leafs on Wednesday night.
After fading down the stretch to finish 12th in the East, the Maple Leafs (38-36-8) made a big splash by hiring Shanahan. The three-time Stanley Cup champion and Hall of Famer takes over a franchise that hasn't celebrated a championship since 1967.
The Maple Leafs will have to improve defensively to get back in contention after ranking 26th in GAA (3.07) and 28th on the penalty kill (78.4 percent) last season.
UPDATES AS THEY COME IN
On Wednesday, Oct. 8, downtown Toronto will host the 2014 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off, the National Hockey League's 2014-15 season opening hockey and music festival and viewing party at Yonge-Dundas Square. The free and public festivities begin at 12:00 p.m. ET, rain or shine, through the conclusion of the Montreal Canadiens vs. Toronto Maple Leafs game, which will be shown on giant outdoor video screens at Yonge-Dundas Square.
AND HERE IS SOME NOSTALGIA FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE
(THE "MUSIC" SUCKS)

Haven posted here in years, but still read here and there. Just thought I'd sign in and make everyone damn jealous because I score box seats to this game! Last time, 5 years ago maybe, I saw the habs play here we won in OT. Hoping for another awesome game. Really excited to see these new folks and what they're all about. I'm calling 3-1 with goals from chucky, markov and Weiss with an empty netter.

Interesting little factoid:

Forum Research released a new poll surveying 1,504 Canadians about hockey in Canada and about 52 per cent of respondents claimed to be hockey fans. About 23 per cent said they support the Habs compared to the Leafs and Vancouver Canucks, which each received only 12 per cent support.

:D

Going to be a great game.. I do believe for the first time in years we are the stronger team and are going to impose our will on the Laffs... fans of other teams seem to think we're the same habs from 2010.... they'll soon find out from otherwise... we have five players under six feet with three of them playing like they're over six feet.. pleky, weaver, and Gally! So we have a different out look.. We're younger, bigger and if Eller plays up to his contract and Sekac is as good as we think he is we should more then replace the losses of the summer... obviously P.A barring a disaster will be a huge improvement of Briere! I expect great things from the habs this year and soon the cup will be ours... If Chucky takes the next step we will be a fore to reckon with.. I wonder if the Kings would of been able to compete with our speed!
