City Of Montreal Is Trying To Organize Outdoor Habs Games Screenings

As locals eagerly await the first game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Tampa Bay Lightning, Mayor Valérie Plante says the City of Montreal is trying to create outdoor viewing options for the final matches.

"Since last Thursday, and the accession of our @CanadiensMTL to the final of the @StanleyCup, we are working very hard on different scenarios that would allow CH fans to see the matches of the final, outdoors and in complete safety," Plante wrote in a tweet Sunday evening.

Before such can happen, the City must get approval from public health authorities, since the excitement for the Habs potentially winning the Stanley Cup could result in large gatherings, which remain forbidden in Quebec.

"We are continuing to work with the other partners to find solutions that will please fans while respecting health rules," the mayor continued.

The upcoming game is at 8 p.m. on Monday, June 28 — so here's hoping a safe, outdoor screening can be figured out before that.
