MTL@NSH: Nashville says thank you to Shea Weber

What do you do when the guy who led your team for 11 seasons comes back to town? Try to make him cry with a tribute video, of course.

Defenseman Shea Weber got a little dose of nostalgia in the first period of the Montreal Canadiens game against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday when his old team played a video full of memories from his time in Nashville.

Predators fans gave Weber, who was traded to the Canadiens on June 29, 2016 for defenseman P.K. Subban, a standing ovation during the tribute that included a look back at his accomplishments on the ice and his efforts in the community.

There was a lot to get in during the near two-minute video and it was clear the tribute really touched Weber, who got a little emotional watching the presentation.

Weber later scored the tying goal for the Canadiens with 4:26 left in the game, and Montreal 2-1 won in overtime.
