In case you didn't know, the Habs/Bruins will be playing a pre-season game in Halifax this September. The last one was a few years ago. Boston won 7-3 but it was still very entertaining. Lots of fights and bad blood. So, just a FYI to Habs fans in the Maritimes.
As much as I'd love to go, I made a deal with myself to never pay more than 75 bucks to go see something at the Metro Centre. Luckily the Pixies the other night was 65. I'd rather pay the extra 50 to see a game in Montreal this year where I have a chance of losing my hearing, not cheering awkwardly like Halifax usually does (anybody else ever notice that Halifax has no idea when to clap for a song? God, it happens once or twice at each concert, where we'll cheer like 20 seconds before a song ends, or we just stay completely silent when we should be cheering).
I've got tickets already. Sect 9 row O. My wife has been saying that the HABS - booins rivalry is the best one, now she'll get to see a game with some regulars and top prospects and the hate on is still pretty high.
That's great! But I just tried to buy tickets for my son and I and the only ones left are in the upper bowl corners.
I know! I figured I'd wait because the last two or three pre-season games in Halifax were not close to being sold out. Now I'm considering just going alone and getting a single in the lower bowl corner. Sides are apparently sold out already.

First 6 or 7 rows are good seats, IMO. Beyond that, you're stuck behind the skyboxes. Which means an obstructed view of the other side of the ice and the scoreboard. I sat up there for Crosby's Oceanic vs the Mooseheads in the Q finals and it was brutal. No way I'd pay $65 to sit up there for anything.
