Oct. 8, 2014

Canadiens @ Maple Leafs

The tradition continues. For a sixth straight year, the Canadiens will kick off the regular season by battling the Toronto Maple Leafs. This time around, the Air Canada Centre will play host to the tilt. Statistics suggest we’re in for a good game as four of the last five season-openers between the two teams have been decided by just one goal.

Oct. 16, 2014

Canadiens vs. Bruins

The Canadiens and the Bruins will both be fired up for their first matchup since the 2014 Playoffs. It’s impossible to forget the intensity of that second-round series, one that saw the Habs rally from 3-2 down to spoil Boston’s party and eliminate the Bruins in seven games. It will be an emotional game. That’s for sure!

Oct. 25, 2014

Canadiens vs. Rangers

Michel Therrien’s squad will have the opportunity to settle a few scores early on in the year in 2014-15. After battling the Bruins on Oct. 16, it will be the Rangers’ turn to visit the Bell Centre on Oct. 25. Carey Price will have a chance to pick up right where he left off against New York after leaving Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals following a collision with Chris Kreider that forced him to miss the remainder of the playoffs.

Nov. 28-29, 2014

Canadiens @/vs. Sabres

The Canadiens play a rare home-and-home series in 2014-15 when they visit the First Niagara Center on Friday, Nov. 28 before returning to the Bell Centre on Nov. 29. The second tilt of the series will mark the return of both Brian Gionta and Josh Gorges to the Bell Centre in their new uniforms after being dealt to Buffalo during the offseason.

Canadiens vs. Kings

Going up against the defending Stanley Cup champs always adds a little extra excitement to any regular season contest. Fortunately, the Canadiens have some added motivation to best Los Angeles this time around after the Kings handed Michel Therrien’s troops a 6-0 loss last December in Montreal, snapping the Habs’ five-game winning streak. It’s safe to say the Canadiens will do everything they can to avoid a similar result on home turf.

Dec. 20, 2014

Canadiens vs. Senators

The rivalry between a pair of Atlantic Division squads is renewed as the Canadiens and Senators play the first of four regular season tilts during the 2014-15 campaign. The bleu-blanc-rouge won three of the five games between the two teams last season, three of which were decided in overtime. The animosity stemming from a 2013 first-round playoff matchup is still very much alive. With that in mind, both teams won’t hesitate to try to make things uncomfortable for one another just days before the Christmas break.

Dec. 30, 2014

Canadiens @ Panthers

The Canadiens will go up against former assistant coach Gerard Gallant when they visit the BB&T Center for their final tilt of 2014. Installed as the Panthers’ new bench boss on June 21, Gallant will be charged with turning things around in South Florida with a young, upstart squad led by reigning Calder Trophy winner, Jonathan Huberdeau. Michel Therrien’s troops will have to put friendship aside when they battle Gallant’s new squad, however, as the Panthers gave the Canadiens a run for their money in 2013-14. The two teams split the season-series. Florida won the first two matchups, before Montreal won the final two tilts.

Feb. 1, 2015

Canadiens vs. Coyotes

There’s no better way to get yourself set for the biggest football game of the year than with a Super Bowl Sunday matinee matchup between the Canadiens and the Coyotes at the Bell Centre. Before the NFL’s top two teams duke it out in the Valley of the Sun, the Habs will look to get Montrealers’ Super Bowl festivities off to a good start by sending Arizona packing in the middle of another cold Quebec winter.

Mar. 2 – Mar. 7, 2015

Canadiens @ Sharks/Ducks/Kings/Coyotes

The Canadiens battle some of the NHL’s perennial powerhouses at a pivotal point in the year when they embark on a week-long road trip that will see them contest three games in the Golden State before wrapping things up in Arizona. In 2013-14, Michel Therrien’s troops dropped three of the four games on this very same road swing, so they’ll be looking to best San Jose, Los Angeles and Phoenix in their own barns this time around. You can bet Montrealers will be staying up late to catch plenty of good hockey from many time zones away!

Apr. 11, 2015

Canadiens @ Maple Leafs

The Canadiens will close out the 2014-15 regular season campaign the same way it began, with a matchup against the archrival Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre. Plenty could still be on the line when the two teams go head-to-head down the 401, so expect the unexpected! Even if either teams’ postseason fate has been determined by the time Montreal and Toronto clash at the ACC, neither squad will be cutting the other any slack come puck drop.
