The Canadiens’ game at the Bell Center will be played behind closed doors

The Montreal Canadiens announced that at the request of Quebec Public Health, Thursday’s game at the Bell Center against the Philadelphia Flyers will be presented behind closed doors.

An update will be provided on Friday in anticipation of Saturday’s game against the Boston Bruins – the last scheduled at the Bell Center in 2021.

The request was made under the significant increase in COVID-19 cases in the Montreal area.

The limit was also 7,500 spectators during the preseason games this fall, then the authorities gave the green light to fill the Bell Center to its maximum capacity in time for the home opener on October 16.

The maximum capacity of the Bell Center is 21,302 spectators.
