The atmosphere once again prevailed around the Bale Center, with two to three times more fans than the previous evenings to watch the showdown between the two teams.
In addition to T-shirts and flags in the colors of the Hab, several Montreal residents were seen holding brooms in hand to “sweep” the qualifying planes on Monday night.
Several fireworks were set off to cheers from fans in the streets of downtown a few minutes after the Canadian’s victory.
“I’m still a little nervous, but I think we’re still relatively in control of the game, it’s really fun to be able to watch it with everyone and live with everyone,” said one fan at the end of the second half, when the score was. It was 2-2 between the two teams.
Many agents from the Montreal Police Department (SPVM) and horse patrols are also on hand, like Last Game Nights, to ensure there is no flooding.
The Montreal Canadiens moved into the third round of the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 3-2 overtime win over the Gates.
