    My girlfriend is a crazy habs fan from MTL, and we found the place to go is Kilgours, 509 Bloor St west.
    Go early though, it's a little small, and gets packed up quickly.

      How are they watching the games? Do they have Reseau Des Sports (RDS) there? Also, any place outside the downtown area that shows Habs games?

      Kilgours is the ONLY place to watch and cheer for the Habs in TO without getting murdered...

        It's true.

        Now if bloody Rogers would just add RDS HD to the channel grid.

        Kilgour's probably has the best atmosphere due to the other habs fans but it is small and the TVs are not so good and the food stinks...

        Any bar with the Centre Ice Package can show the habs game...

        What part of town are you in???

          Wayne Gretsky's, if you want to live up to your name

            Leafs fans won't lynch you for wearing a Habs jersey in a Toronto sports bar. Sure, you might take a lot good natured ribbing, but your safety won't be an issue. Honestly.

            How about: www.harboursportsgrille.com

            Location can't be beat. Good food too.

              I can't believe you did not take my comment literally!? Safety is always an issue when it comes to Habs vs. Leafs!

              being a die hard fan myself, i've never had safety issues with watching the habs in Toronto. i have had a few smirks here and there when im the only one cheering!
              Loose Moose on front street - downstairs bar especially for the playoffs
              the Flatiron Firkin - great atmosphere during the hockey games
              Filthy McNasty's on King - cheap beer and even cheaper hockey night wings
