Montrealers Best Habs Sweep Tweets & Pics From The Mega Celebration Outside The Bell Centre

On the scene photos of last night's Bell Centre & St. Cats celebrations.

Only if you literally lived under a rock would you be unaware that the Montreal Canadiens beat out the Tampa Bay Lightning and advanced to the second round of the NHL playoffs.

The game itself was a roller coaster ride of emotions, but after the final goal was scored, the festivities didn't stop. Hundreds of Montrealers flocked to the Bell Centre to show their support, so many that the city's police got worried a riot might break out. Wouldn't be the first time.

Thankfully, things got rowdy, but not to the point of tear gas and pepper spray. It got close though. Check out on-the-scene photos from Montrealer's tweets to see how it all went down.

To get fans pumped...a very sad looking blimp

Before things even got rowdy, some horses, for good measure

But horses or not, Montrealers still gathered to show their support

Because when you call, the SPVM show up. Which is there job...but they were already on standby anyway.

Then things got a little tense

But things turned out fine when fans took it to the streets, in a good, non-violent, and not even a protest kind of way
