How to see the habs practice?

Is there any way to know when the habs will practice at a local arena that is open to the public?

My trick is to check the Bell Center calendar and if the Habs are in Montreal while there's a concert/show you know they'll be at Verdun.

Last week they had Madonna in town and it was pretty obvious they were gonna practice at verdun.

The Canadiens used to practice after us in Verdun regularly. I don't remember the day though. They would DESTROY the ice surface too, especially in the corners and by the boards near the lines. Hilarious.

Gillett was on Prime Time Sports today and mentioned that the Brossard Complexe will open in the next month. It will have 2 NHL sheets of ice, and will have an indoor soccer field.

Gillett seemed to indicate most of the practices (not on gamedays though) will be held there. Most of the players live around South Shore and want to be in that area. The practices on gamedays will probably be at Bell Centre. Interestingly, the practice facility will get branded by Bell. What do you guys think? Centre de Glaces presentee par Bell?

Selon ce que RDS a appris, déjà le Tricolore a réservé la glace à Verdun pour plusieurs jours au mois de décembre parce que les travaux ne sont toujours pas complétés à Brossard, particulièrement dans le secteur réservé au Canadien.

Toutefois, le reste du complexe ouvrira ses portes samedi.


So they are going to practise at Verdun a few more times?

Can someone from mtl please translate this. I understand most of it but not 'travaux'

merci!

I think Travaux is construction work....

The canadiens have reserved more dates at the rink in Verdun during december because the construction work is not yet completed at Brossared on the special section reserved for the Canadiens.

Thats my attempt... but my french kinda sucks...

The Brossard Complex is almost done. They're just making the last adjustments

As for the Habs, a lot of them currently live in the L section of Brossard (latendresse, Marov, etc.)
