In Ottawa, when that red light goes on, things get lit. But once it turns green again, everyone calms down to left traffic pass.

Yes, in Ottawa, they know how to party responsibly.

Footage of some Senators fans celebrating their Game 6 victory over the New York Rangers and subsequent berth in the Eastern Conference Final surfaced on Twitter.

Fans flooded the streets, well, sidewalks actually, and waited for a red light to go out and jump around in celebration.

At one point in the posted video, a Senators flag flies past.

But these fans are good citizens. They quickly returned to the sidewalks and ceased celebrating when they didn't have the right of way.
