15 New Montreal Bars To Watch Montreal Canadiens Playoff Games

Photo cred - Le Trèfle

It's finally here Montreal. That's right, the Habs Playoff mothefvcking Hockey! After their much deserved regular season dominance, Carey Price, P.K. Subban and the rest of the gang are once again going to lace 'em up and push for that ever illusive Stanley Cup, hopefully bringing it home this time, where it belongs.

There's no question that watching a Habs game live at the Bell Centre is the best possible way to enjoy all of the action, and while that's not always possible for everyone, watching it with other passionate fans at a Montreal bar is. With a bunch of great new spots opened this year, it's never been easier to grab a pitcher with your friends and yell obscenities at a TV screen all together.

So with beer in hand, it's time to settle in for the most exciting time of the year, fill up on some delicious pub grub, and cheer on our Bleu, Blanc & Rouge to glorious victory.
