The Montréal Canadiens announced their upcoming 2015 preseason schedule. They are the home team for the September 28th game.

From the team's official news release:

Michel Therrien's troops will play seven preseason games in a span of 12 days in order to narrow down their roster ahead of a brand new season. The first game is scheduled for September 22nd against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Bell Centre. It will mark Mike Babcock's first visit to Montréal as the Leafs' new bench boss.

Two days later, the Canadiens will begin a set of three games in as many nights. The first two games will be played at the Bell Centre. The Canadiens will battle the Washington Capitals on September 24th before taking on the reigning Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks on September 25th. Then, the CH will travel to Toronto to wrap up the tough stretch at the Air Canada Centre.

On September 28th, the Canadiens will battle the Pittsburgh Penguins in their annual preseason visit to Québec City. The tilt will mark the inaugural NHL game at the brand new Videotron Centre.

Fans will then be privy to a home-and-home series between the Canadiens and the Senators to close out the preseason schedule. Ottawa will visit Montréal on October 1st, while the Canadiens will visit their Atlantic Division rivals on October 3rd.
