As a lifetime Bruin fan, I miss the Montreal rival games more every year while we play NJ and Long Island plus the Ranmgers. ugh!


Exactly Billy! Bs preseason at PVD D.Donuts from early 1970s thru to the 1990s+ I went to 90%+ to ALL THOSE GAMES. I even went to St Catherine’s St in Habs/Monreal home base to watch games there! With Tickets, ⛽, food, buying a few Bs-Habs Tee’s, novelty junk and a fun ride to & from Habs country costs LESS THAN A REGULAR SEASON GAME TODAY. I MAN-LUVd THE OLD GARDEN back then🥅🏒… Take care Billy👍🏻🇺🇸
