This year’s Ducks Road Crew trip was Montreal and Toronto, and then I am breaking off on my own with 25 other fans to Buffalo. About 90 Ducks fans will be attending this year’s trip, the biggest one for North America (with London and Finland/Sweden being bigger). Karen, Myles, Debbie, Sandy D, Kris, Stephen and I decided to go to Montreal a day early to settle in.
We left our 80-degree California weather for a white, snow covered Montreal. The taxi to the hotel was a flat $40 rate (Canadian dollar) and the Marriott was located less than a block from the Bell Centre.
The Anaheim Ducks was playing in Ottawa, so I made a 7:00 reservations at McLean’s, a pub located about 2 blocks from the hotel.
