NHL 100 Classic Live Stream watch Online, Ottawa Senators vs Montreal Canadiens Live Hokey 2017, Canadiens vs. Senators 2017 live stream: Time, TV channel, and how to watch NHL 100 Classic online.
The NHL’s centennial celebration continues Saturday with the NHL 100 Classic, an outdoor matchup between the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa. The action begins at 7 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally in the United States on NBCSN.
The first outdoor game of the 2017-18 season also helps celebrate the history of the sport. The league chose Senators-Canadiens as the matchup in honor of one of the first two games in NHL history on Dec. 19, 1917. On that day, the original Senators faced the Canadiens, while the Montreal Wanderers faced the Toronto Arenas.
“To launch our next 100 years, we believe it is only right to bring the Canadiens and the Senators back together,” commissioner Gary Bettman said when the NHL 100 Classic was first announced in March.
The history will definitely be the main selling point of a game that’s otherwise between two middling Eastern Conference foes.
The Senators have just two wins in their past 14 games dating back to mid-November. That brutal stretch has coincided with a slump from superstar defenseman Erik Karlsson, who has two points and a minus-18 rating over the past 14 games. Amid that stretch, Karlsson also publicly discussed his 2019 free agency, which led the Senators to request his no-trade list.
DeShaun Watson, hands down. Anytime your team adds a potential franchise quarterback, it’s automatically the biggest move of the offseason. Whether it was through free agency last year with Osweiler or through the draft this year for Watson, the Texans have been ultra-aggressive in their approach to finding a capable signal caller in the post-Matt Schaub era. Hopefully Watson will finally be the guy to end their arduous search.
