NHL Ice Hockey tickets

by clank007

I'm planning on revisiting Canada in Mid December and want to take in an Ice Hockey game if I can.
I've asked on the Toronto forum how feasable it would be to get my hands on any ticket for any maple leafs game and the answer was basically zero.

So I've searched online for other teams to see and it looks like Montreal has a better NHL team than Toronto so i'd like to see them play instead.
My question is therefore is it possible to buy a ticket online for a Montreal canadiens game or are my chances 0%?

Hi - if you're willing to pay you can always check on ebay or with a ticket broker. Otherwise, check their site Looks like the new season schedule is out but that tickets aren't available yet. Happy Travels!

There may be a chance to see the games in Montreal Dec 2,11,20 and 21. In Ottawa Dec 13,16 and 20.
These are just a guess as the opponants might not draw as many fans. I could be wrong depending on the number of visits they have per year.

Your comment about Montreal having a better team really made me laugh. Maple Laugh that is.
In Vancouver you can buy tickets, to sold out games, game day on or at the arena from resellers, it may be possible in Toronto, Montral and Ottawa but, they will be much higher than face value until midway into the first period.

There are also "scalpers" standing near the entrances....bargain for price.....wait till game starts as prices drop....sometimes people who are not scalpers but who just can't make the game or someone gave them free tickets will also be there trying to sell them......can usually get a better deal on these. Price depends often on who they are playing and therefore how popular the game is likely to be.

Hi Thanks for your replies.

Do you know how close to the game starting that tickets go on sale?
Here in England the footie tickets go on general sale about 2 weeks before a game.
I need to book my flight pretty sharpish so wouldnt want to get to Montreal without a ticket to be honest.

Ottawa will be the easiest clank, they don't have the massive fan base that Toronto/Montreal have. That said, if you want the true hockey experience, TO or MON are the places to be (nothing against my Sens, just we prefer watching the game to acting like yahoos ;) ).

In Ottawa, I think you can get standing room tickets on the third level for around $30. Keep in mind Scotiabank place is a painful bus ride from the city centre. They have a special bus, but if you've been consuming large amounts of beer, you're in for a rough ride!

I am able now to enter the ticketing part of the Canadiens website.

However there is no option for E tickets? I bought an E ticket when I saw a Blue Jays baseball game earlier on in the year.

The website info says E tickets are allowed but I can find no option within the billing section to buy them...has anyone ever used this facility and knows how to get to it at all please?

Travel Tips for Montreal

Hitchcock Rules!

by Canadian_girl

The Alfred Hitchcock exhibit at the Musee des Beaux-Arts in February 2001. It was incredible! Lots of artwork that influenced the great man, plus exhibits like Janet Leigh's bra from Psycho and broken eyeglasses from The Birds, and an exact reconstruction of the room in the Bates Motel -- including a shadowy form behind the shower curtain. Amazing!

Want to live in a church?

by Biljana

Upon his first visit to Montreal, Mark Twain said: "This is the first time I was ever in a city where you couldn't throw a brick without breaking a church window." So it is no wonder that Montreal has been nicknamed "the city of hundred churches." But these days church is not what it used to be. In an era of declining Mass attendance and the rising cost of repairing worn buildings, the Catholic Church in Montreal has downsized. While entering Little Italy (Petite Italie), a visitor will undoubtably notice the old Saint-Jean-de-la-Croix church. This towering building is rather massive and cathedral-like. At first glance, the imposing stone building still resembles a church, but a discerning eye will notice the latest Montreal real estate trend "church gone condo". On the side of the church, where once stained glass windows used be, now stand small metal balconies. In 1999, the Catholic Church allowed a residential developer to redesign the inside of the church and turn it into condominums. Needless to say this event was controversial. Long time residents of Little Italy frowned upon the idea of turning the neighbourhood church into a residential building. Despite the neighbourhood disapproval, the opportunity to live in an elegant, older building with modern plumbing and deluxe interior was difficult to pass up for those who could afford it. Most units sold quickly, despite steep prices. Then again, a hefty mortgage is a small price to pay for ensuring that you will always be in church on Sunday mornings.

City Hall - Hotel du Ville (1878)

by yooperprof

Montreal's attractive City Hall is modelled upon a similarly classic structure in Tours, France. Well proportioned for its site, the structure dominates the square without seeming overwhelmingly bombastic.

It's a historic site, too: in 1967, the French President Charles de Gaulle gave a stirring speech from the balcony which heated up the sentiments of Quebec nationalists.

275 Rue Notre dame est (east)

This delicous local treat also is definitely a double bypass in a styrofoam cup. It consists of french fries and cheese curds all covered with gravy. Very good but not recommended for daily consumption.

Children love to go trick or treating!

by Gwenvar

Every year, kids love to put on costumes. Well, it's the unwritten law, if you want to get candy!
This custom has been brought over here about a hundred years ago, when a huge wave of Irish immigrants arrived in Montreal. And you can beleive me when I say this, 'tis much gentler now, to be walking on the streets on Halloween night...
