Bell Centre to broadcast Game 6 of Canadiens-Lightning series

The Bell Centre in downtown Montreal will be open Tuesday night to allow Canadiens fans to watch the team's crucial Game 6 against the Tampa Bay Lightning, which will be played in Florida. Tickets cost $10, with part of the proceeds going to the Montreal Canadiens Children's Foundation.

The Bell Centre in downtown Montreal will be open Tuesday night to allow Canadiens fans to watch the team's crucial Game 6 against the Tampa Bay Lightning, which will be played in Florida.

Tickets cost $10, with part of the proceeds going to the Montreal Canadiens Children's Foundation.

Team spokesman Donald Beauchamp says the club expects a crowd of about 20,000.

Montreal police spokesman Jean-Pierre Brabant says the Canadiens informed authorities of the event.

There will be a police presence around the arena as the Canadiens try to stave off elimination after winning the last two games to make it 3-2 for the Lightning.

A Canadiens victory would guarantee another full house at the Bell Centre on Thursday night — a Game 7 that would actually be played in the building.
