CANADIENS SEEING SELLOUTS: In Montreal, Brenda Branswell reported the Canadiens' season opener Saturday against the Maple Leafs "is sold out and there are only a few tickets left for Tuesday’s game at the Bell Centre" against the Panthers. Tickets for the two games "went on sale Sunday after the lockout officially ended." Individual game tickets for the Canadiens' 22 other home games "go on sale this coming Sunday." The Canadiens yesterday announced details of their "plan to let people attend an intra-squad game at the Bell Centre for free on Thursday as well as the Habs and Leafs morning skates on Saturday, part of a bid to make amends to fans for the lockout." Seating is "first-come, first served." The team is "promising everyone who attends a free hot dog, chips and a soft drink" (Montreal GAZETTE, 1/14).
