The Montreal Canadiens are the first NHL team north of the border to announce plans to let fans back into their building.

The team will permit 2,500 spectators to attend games at the Bell Centre beginning May 28.

The Canadiens begin their opening-round playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday. A potential Game 6 in Montreal is scheduled for May 29.

Though most American teams allowed at least some fans back into their arenas this season, Canadian clubs have played in front of empty stadiums throughout the pandemic.
