According to ESPN (Can we trust them when it comes to hockey?) The streak is safe for now.

I walked by the Bell Centre at at 7:45, and they were advertising tickets being available for the game on the old scoreboard above the box office, so...

What do they claim to be a sellout? If there are 200-300 singles left, would they claim that a sell out? I think there will be games vs teams like the Jets, this season that may not actually be sold out...the prices are pretty steep this year, and the optimum games are out of this world crazy...

Fans will stay away if this team loses. They had thousands of empty seats during the dark years and were not selling out. Say what you will, but Leafs fans are more loyal than Habs fans.

Leaf fans are used to the failure but still, they are extremely loyal. The fans deserve better than what they've been given.

Leafs fans are loyal for sure but GTA is close to twice as large as Montreal metro area.

I'll say it again, there were plenty of empty seats sunday against NJ. I'd say about 600-700 empties in the reds, and even more up in the whites/blue. Unused season tickets? Bought by management? Scalper leftovers? I don't know, but this whole "sellout" thing is a travesty.

Sellout streaks dont mean much. The Fenway Park sellout streak is a complete ********.

Organizations manipulate things to make them look good.

I got a tweet from the Habs on Tuesday saying plenty of seats available for tonight's game and it was late afternoon. Really doubt they sold out

It's always been hard to get tickets on SuperBowl weekend, people can finally take their kids to the game
