Jimmy Fallon calls in Habs hockey bet

MONTREAL – There are going to be a few changes around town now that the Habs have been eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
For anyone who’s forgotten…
The Montreal Canadiens threw down the gauntlet to Jimmy Fallon by challenging the Tonight Show host to accept a friendly wager.
The Canadiens proposed that if the Rangers win the series, the team will put a photo of Fallon as its Twitter avatar for a day.
Fallon retorted that he also wants to see Youppi! ride the mechanical bull at Chez Serge.

Not to mention…
New York City’s mayor Bill de Blasio also had an interesting offer for Montreal mayor Denis Coderre.
The offer came just hours after it was announced that Carey Price would be sitting out for the rest of the series due to his collision with New York Rangers’ forward Chris Kreider.
Of course, Coderre accepted.
With the Rangers beating the Habs in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Montrealers will also be looking at a new, very blue addition the Montreal’s City Hall facade.
“As soon as I receive those New York bagels and the Rangers flag I’ll honour my part of the bet,” wrote Coderre on Twitter.
Youppi! may have been ready to take one for the team, but in a conference Saturday the Habs insisted they’ll be back next year ready to take the Cup.
