As we come to the eve of Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, fans of both finalist teams are anxious to know who will win the series. The mayor of Tampa said she wants the Montreal Canadiens to win Monday night — but not for the right reasons.
During a press conference for the 4th of July festivities, the mayor of Tampa, Jane Castor, made a bit of a crack at the Habs.
What did Castor say about the upcoming game?
"What we would like is for the Lightning to take it a little bit easy, to give the Canadiens just the smallest break to allow them to win one at home. Then, bring it back to Amalie Arena for the finals and the Stanley Cup," she said with a smile.
She admitted that she didn't want to speak too soon, but said "[the Tampa Bay Lightning] are playing some amazing, amazing hockey."
The Montreal Canadiens will face the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final this Monday, July 5, at 8 p.m. at the Bell Centre — so we'll just have to wait and see how it all plays out.
Has Valérie Plante said anything about the Habs vs. the Lightning in the Stanley Cup Finals?

On June 29, mayor Plante tweeted "I had the opportunity to speak with the Mayor of Tampa Bay, @JaneCastor. Nice discussion during which we discussed our two cities, and the Stanley Cup final."
According to Plante, the only thing the two disagreed on was who would win the series, she said with a little winky face.
