With a victory in Montreal on Thursday night, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats will improve to a CFL-best 4-0 to start the season, and they will also clinch the season series against the Alouettes.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. After the game, listen to 900 CHML’s 5th Quarter post-game show and watch it on CHML’s Facebook page.
Hamilton is coming off a 41-10 thrashing of Montreal last Friday night to cap off the Cats’ first three-game winning streak to start a season since 2004.
Securing a fourth win in a row would match the club’s best start since 1989. Hamilton’s longest winning streak to start a season came in 1961 when they started 7-0 but ultimately lost in the Grey Cup final, 21-14, against Winnipeg.
The Cats kicked off the 1958 campaign with their longest unbeaten streak to start a season (8-0-1). Oddly enough, the Tiger-Cats lost to Winnipeg in the Grey Cup in both years.
After missing the last two weeks with a shoulder injury, receiver Luke Tasker will return to Hamilton’s lineup. However, Tasker will replace receiver Bralon Addison after the CFL sophomore was added to the one-game injured list.
