This past week, Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé announced that hockey games in Montreal would allow 3,500 spectators indoors, up from the previous 2,500-person limit. However, that still pales in comparison to the 18,000 spectators filling the stands at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Even though the energy at the Bell Center was palpable, and the Habs clinched the win, the difference in ambiance was noticeable during last night's game — the first home game of the series.
Although the atmosphere in the Bell Centre was less raucous than that of Las Vegas, it didn't stop the Montreal Canadiens from their Game 3 semi-final victory, thanks to Josh Anderson's winning goal in overtime.

"Montreal’s rich vein of creative talent will be a valuable asset," said Christoph Hartmann, vice president of Amazon Games, in a press release. "Our new Montreal studio shares our commitment to creating best-in-class online games, and brings with them a wealth of knowledge and passion for building deep, community-focused multiplayer experiences."
While Amazon might not be known for developing video games, the company has dipped its toes into the industry with projects such as the upcoming MMO New World and Pac-Man Live Studio.
With plenty of new, unannounced games in the works, Amazon says that "the Montreal studio expands [its] commitment to developing games that offer bold new play experiences and foster community inside and outside of the games themselves."
