On Sunday, the Montreal Canadiens and their mascot Youppi! fulfilled the terms of a bet made with late-night television host Jimmy Fallon.
Because the Canadiens lost the best-of-7 Eastern Conference Final to the New York Rangers 4-2, the team changed its Twitter avatar to a picture of Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist playing guitar. In addition, Youppi! tweeted 10 pictures of himself wearing a Rangers jersey around town before ending Sunday morning by riding a mechanical bull at Montreal bar Chez Serge.
Beginning with a shot looking up at Montreal's Bell Centre, here's Youppi!'s tour of the town wearing a Rangers jersey with Fallon's name.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
