Anyone have any theories on why its so much lower than the 59,000 from last year?

I am surprised, since I thought people liked what they say last year and thus more would be interested this time. Plus the prices are about the same too
Last year they sold the game as "the first home game in the history of the club" therefore making it an event. Montreal is an event city, that's why we got 59k. Same thing for the Beckham game, they marketed it as THE event of the month.

Two other factors:

- The Habs are in first place.
- UFC is at the Bell Center on the same night.
