If you live in the US, you can watch most Habs games on ESPN+, which is the home of most out-of-market NHL broadcasts, streaming 1,000 games every season.

Be aware: when the Habs are on NHL Network, which will only happen a handful of times each season, the games will be blacked out on ESPN+. You can add fuboTV “Sports Lite” to gain access to NHL Network, but fuboTV is missing both TNT and TBS, which are both important channels for watching nationally televised marquee NHL games.
