A new report from Royal LePage suggests that while Montreal's real estate market might start to cool down, home prices are still projected to increase more overall than any other market in Canada.
The company recorded a 21.7% year-over-year increase in the "aggregate price of a home" ("a weighted average of the median values of all housing types collected") in the Montreal area in the second quarter of 2021, bringing it to $514,000.
While dismayed Habs players held back tears at their post-game press conference, Lightning player Nikita Kucherov shared his thoughts about the season — including Canadiens fans — in his own emotional (and shirtless) audience with the media.
Players held back tears as they shared both their disappointment in the results and pride in their teammates.
"I've played on a lot of really good teams, with a lot of really good guys, it's hard right now," Gallagher said to the press.
"We've got so many players that worked their entire careers to get to this point and it's a tough pill to swallow."
Shea Weber reflected on the Canadiens' run as the league's underdogs.
"This group has a lot of character and we put up with a lot of adversity this year, we proved a lot of people wrong, in a tough year to boot."
When asked what he thought about the season, meanwhile, Price attempted to blame himself for the Habs' performance in the Stanley Cup Final, saying he didn't think he "played well enough at the start of the series."
Weber cut in to shoot him down. "I don't think that's the case at all. To be honest, I think we weren't good enough in front of Carey."
When Montreal Canadiens defenceman Alexander Romanov scored a goal during his first-ever Stanley Cup Finals game on Monday night, the whole city erupted in celebration. But the one who was celebrating the hardest was definitely Romanov's wife, Sofia Krasovskaya.
Following the game, Narcity Québec reached out to Krasovskaya and she opened up about her time as a newlywed hockey wife in Montreal.
Garbage littered the street in front of the Bell Centre.
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.
