In a stressful overtime game, the Montreal Canadiens successfully overcame the Vegas Golden Knights on Friday night in a 3-2 victory, taking the series lead — and Montrealers reacted to the win in a big way.
Instagram user @habsnveggies wrote, "Crowd was electric. The city will burn if they move into the next round."
In a video, a large crowd is seen watching the game through La Cage windows and Christopher is even seen crowd surfing.
Habs fans surrounded star goalie Carey Price as he drove home after the victory. "After all, it's Carey Price, one of the greatest if not the greatest goalie in history. To have seen him in person was fun and memorable," said @y.zadar, who recorded the video.
MTL Blog's Alex Melki was on the scene at the Bell Center when, after the game, fans literally did backflips and lit up fireworks to celebrate Montreal's very best. Go Habs Go!
