Pittsburgh Penguins (12-6-4) @ Montreal Canadiens (10-9-3)
Centre Bell, Montreal, QC
Like it or not, trips to the Bell Centre are always special. Sure, the pregame ceremony will likely be ridiculously long and the crowd will react to just about everything, but it's still a special building to watch a hockey game in.
Season Series: 1-0-0 Penguins.
Last meeting that counted: October 20, 2011. Penguins won 3-1.
What we said in our recap:
Rule #193 about watching a Penguins season: Always enjoy a win over the Montreal Canadiens. The last two years, the Habs have had this uncanny ability to destroy our will to live. But not last night. Usually the Canadiens play rope-a-dope long enough to get some lucky goal and win the game. The Pens' defense was Clearasil on the pimple known has Mike Cammalleri. Probably the best day in North America since the Louisiana Purchase.
