From the Globe and Mail.
The Montreal Canadiens’ regular-season game at Olympic Stadium is expected to be on the agenda when the 2009-10 NHL schedule is released tomorrow.
The final tinkering to the 92nd NHL regular season will be made in the next 24 hours, but a league source indicated yesterday that a Habs home game against the Washington Capitals and star sniper Alex Ovechkin “is still in the mix for late November.”
The indoor game at Olympic Stadium is expected to be contested on Nov. 28 or the previous Saturday to help commemorate the Canadiens’ centennial celebrations that will conclude on Dec. 5 with a match against the rival Boston Bruins at the Bell Centre.
The Olympic Stadium game was an idea brought forth, discussed and met with approval at the competition committee meeting three weeks ago – providing the NHL schedule makers could accommodate the request.
I WANT OVIE IN THE OLYMPIC STADIUM! AND I WANT TO BE THERE! Make it happen you twerps in charge of the NHL schedule! I WANT OVIE HERE! WHAAAAAAAAH! It would be SO awesome to have the league's most exciting player playing in the craziest city ever.
