Let's face it people, hope was at an all-time low at the start of Game 5. But taking a look at these tweets from Montrealers watching the game, you would never be able to tell.
The Habs' (admittedly) surprising 7-4 victory against the New York Rangers has restored hope within the city. Now we know the Rangers can be crushed, and with all the online support from fans, the possibility of the Habs winning the series is increasingly becoming a reality.
Fans were jacked off of Habs-hype last night, and you may have even tweeted a few proud remarks. Check out Montreal's top tweets from last night's stunning Game 5 victory below.
Stop taking credit for things, Tricia. Classic Tricia.
