January 15 Canadiens-Devils Game Postponed



Montreal Canadiens

Another Montreal Canadiens game has been postponed due to the ongoing COVID outbreak around the NHL and North America. The Canadiens were set to host the New Jersey Devils on January 15 but that game will now take place on a date yet to be determined.

This is the ninth game in the last month for the Montreal Canadiens to be postponed and the seventh game at the Bell Centre. So far, the only postponed game for the Habs that has been rescheduled has been their Jan. 12 home game against the Boston Bruins. That game will now be played in Boston on the same date and replace the March 21 game at TD Garden. A home date to replace the one lost on Jan. 12 against the Bruins has yet to be determined. That game in Boston next Wednesday will begin a stretch of seven straight games on the road for the Habs, with their next home game not until January 27 against the Anaheim Ducks.

In addition to the Jan. 12 game vs Boston and the one three days later against the Devils, the following Montreal Canadiens games have been postponed:

12/18 vs Boston Bruins

12/22 @ New York Rangers

12/23 @ New Jersey Devils

1/4 vs Washington Capitals

1/8 ve Buffalo Sabres

1/10 vs Columbus Blue Jackets

Due to COVID-19 restrictions in Quebec, there have been no fans allowed in the stands at the Bell Centre since the Montreal Canadiens hosted and beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 in a shootout on Dec. 16. Their next four games – at home against the Bruins on Dec. 18, Dec. 20 at New York Islanders, Dec. 22 @ New York Rangers, Dec. 23 @ Devils – were postponed. The Habs resumed their season on December 28 in Tampa Bay with a hard-fought 5-4 overtime loss while sporting an AHL-dominated roster after the COVID/Holiday NHL Pause from December 23-27. That same essentially Laval Rocket squad lost 4-0 at Carolina on Dec. 30 and then fell 5-2 to the Florida Panthers in Sunrise, Florida on New Year’s Day.

The Montreal Canadiens are now, as mentioned above, currently set to resume their season next Wednesday in Boston, and then travel to Chicago to face the Blackhawks the following day.
