But would they be down about going to Ottawa for game 3 or 6? I'm really not sure.

The sens use 'dynamic pricing' (aka supply and demand to the max), I think only a few teams use it.

Want to see a Blue Jackets game on a tuesday night, you can do it for $30. Want to see a leafs game in the same time slot in the exact same seat....$95.

That's what happened between satuday at 10am and yesterday evening.

In terms of logistics....you can take a greyhoud to the bus station downtown (Catherine st), walk north about 10 mins, and catch a 400 series bus (403 ?) on Albert street for a few bucks. Same bus will take you back downtown so you can choose a downtown hotel/motel. These buses sometimes fill up, so to be safe you might consider going to the Byward Market for drinks, then getting that same bus earlier on in its route on Rideau Street (Just east of Sussex).

$12 in one of the many SBP lots (unless the dynamic price that up to $24 lol) and there is always space.

You can park for free in one of the parking lots of the commercial buildings that are like 1km away, or even the Home Depot that is a little farther. The 15 min walk allows time for you to hydrate. I have done this and never gotten a ticket....maybe take the habs car flags down

Lots of parking there, but a ******* to get out after the game.

The arena is in the middle of nowhere. You can't really park elsewhere and walk.

Sens nation twitter is talking about this thread.

Sens org held tickets until last night and jacked the price... ok with me but by doing that they will have a lot of habs fans now.

I'm reading left and right that the traffic is huge after the games in Ottawa; anyone made the trip back from a game at Scotiabank to Montreal? How much extra time can I expect because of traffic?

I would say anywhere from 30mins to an hour extra! I think that's pretty much accurate.

Just found that on the Montreal Canadiens page on Facebook
https://www.facebook.com/events/447449225349425/

Could be cool for those who go to game 3 to meet somewhere before the game starts. Plenty of Habs fans together!
