Tonight, the streets of downtown Montreal will be deserted between 7 and 10 PM because Montrealers will either be at the Bell Centre, at a local sports bar, or at home with friends to watch the Habs’ home opener against the Tampa Bay Lightning. We live, eat and breathe hockey here.
At the end of the game, as always, is the announcement of the “the three stars”, a great way to spotlight the three players that outshined their teammates. True puckheads always stick around after the game to see who the “stars” will be. For tonight’s game, we are going to see new added little twist from the usual magic on ice. And at the end of the game, a new system will be introduced that will allow the fans to choose who those three stars are.
How, you say?
Yup, there’s an app for that too.
As of today, Smartphone users can download a new Canadiens app to vote for their three stars…a first in club history. It’s totally the fans call tonight.
