The two games from the Bulldogs 2013-14 regular season schedule will give Montreal hockey fans an opportunity to see some of the organization’s prospects. Last year, the Bulldogs had a 1-1 record at the Bell Centre winning 3-2 against the Rochester Americans and dropping a 4-1 decision to the Crunch.

It will be the Bulldogs’ 10th and 11th contests at the Bell Centre in the history of the AHL franchise. The Bulldogs first ever match-up at the Bell Centre was played on March 18, 2007 versus the Syracuse Crunch, just a few weeks before the Canadiens’ AHL affiliate captured the first Calder Cup in franchise history. Carey Price, the Canadiens current goaltender, was a member of that championship Bulldogs squad in 2006-07.

Tickets for those two match-ups starting as low as $15.50 will go on sale on Saturday, September 21 at 12 p.m. (noon). Family packages are available for as low as $99 and include four tickets in the reds, four hot dogs and four soft drinks. Also, fans purchasing tickets for both Bulldogs games at the Bell Centre will enjoy 15% off.
