Bell Centre

Quick question - How many straight seasons has the Bell Centre (including the forum) sold out for habs games?

Not that many. Didn't they recently announce their 100th sell-out in a row?

So roughly 41 games this season (can't remember when exactly it was) + 3 playoff games last year + 41 regular season games last year, so some time during the pre-lockout season they didn't sell out.

ESPN has them at 96.6% in 2003-04

So, I guess the answer is two full seasons.

I believe the last game of the season was the 100th consecutive regular season sellout. I don't think we need to even consider playoff games. However, a couple exhibition games have been under capacity (though the attendance has still been higher than most rinks are capable of).

I think it's 102 or 103 consecutive sell-out

yeah, exhibition games have outragous ticket price imo... I would never pay that much for an exhibition game.

You could normally find a pair for like $30 on ebay. Season ticket holders generally don't care about pre-season, so they take what they can get.
