Hockey is back as the Canadiens pull out all of their jerseys in a pre-season game, benefiting the people of Lac-Mégantic. Ticket prices make this a no-brainer as we support an important cause and even get to enjoy the game with free hot dogs, chips and a (non-alcoholic) drink.
When: September 14, 1p.m.
Where: Bell Centre, 1909 Ave. des Canadiens-de-Montreal, www.centrebell.ca
