Their home opener will be October 18 against the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Canadiens will also be the visiting team on October 13 in the Buffalo Sabres home opener meaning the team will start the season on the road once again.

The full NHL schedule will be released tomorrow at 1:00 PM EST, when we will know when the rest of the team's 82-game schedule.
