The Montreal Canadiens truly have become Canada's team.
The famed Horsehoe Falls at Niagara Falls will light up red, white and blue Sunday in an homage to the Canadiens on the eve of their Stanley Cup Semifinals opener against the Vegas Golden Knights.
The falls on the Canada side of the New York-Ontario border will light up for 30 minutes, from 9:30-10 p.m. ET. The gesture comes less than a week after Toronto's legendary CN Tower lit up in red, white and blue to honor the Canadiens as well.
The official account of Canada's government also showed its support for Montreal with a message posted to Twitter just hours before Game 1 on Monday.
Montreal claimed the Scotia North Division championship by upsetting the top-seeded Toronto Maple Leafs and No. 3-seeded Winnipeg Jets in its first two Stanley Cup Playoff series.
The Canadiens are trying to become the first team from Canada to win the Stanley Cup since they did so in 1993. They are four wins from becoming the first team from Canada to reach the Stanley Cup Final since the Vancouver Canucks in 2011.
