It's approximately the 9000th time in a row that the Habs will face the Leafs during the first game of the year.

The Canadiens will face the Senators during Ottawa's home opener, which takes place on October 11th.

They're not done there, the Habs will take part in a 3rd opposing team's home opener, when they face the Penguins on October 13th.

As for their own home opener, it has not been announced yet, but we'll update it as soon as it's released.
