The Tampa Bay Lightning are Stanley Cup champions for the second year in a row.
The Lightning downed the Montreal Canadiens 1-0 on Wednesday night to take the best-of-seven final in five games.
Montrealers rallied across the city to watch the Habs play Game 5 in hopes that the team could win a second consecutive game in the series as it continued its historic Stanley Cup run.
Thousands of people gathered inside the Bell Centre to watch the game on the stadium’s big screens while several hundreds of fans gathered outside.
Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante also showed her support for her city’s team earlier in the evening, tweeting pictures of her watching outdoors alongside her neighbours.
Meanwhile, Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé was seen in a Habs jersey outside the Olympic stadium, where public screenings of the games have been taking place.
The Canadiens arrived in Tampa, FL., on Tuesday after a 3-2 overtime win at home in Game 4.
The team knew they had a mountain to climb to win their 25th Cup title after Tampa swept the Habs in the first three games of the series.
