Video Shows What It Was Like In Downtown Montreal At The Moment The Canadiens Won Game 4

The Montreal Canadiens defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night to claim Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. The series now moves to Tampa, where the Lightning, still leading 3-1, has a chance to win the Cup at home (as their mayor, Jane Castor, was hoping).

But those odds didn't seem to damper Montrealers' spirit after their team's victory Monday. Video footage shows a crowd of hundreds outside the Bell Centre celebrating the Canadiens' win.

The video, captured by MTL Blog's Alex Melki, shows the crowd cheering and jumping at the moment the game ended and lingering downtown before police appear to disperse revellers. Melki reported that the SPVM used tear gas.

Garbage littered the streets.

In a morning report, SPVM spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant said four people were arrested for assaults on police officers.

Police also issued 36 tickets, Brabant said: 21 for municipal by-law violations and 15 for violations to the road code.

"At the end of the day, it went really well," he added.
