montreal canadiens riot celebration stanley cup finals las vegas golden knights

WATCH: A bird’s eye view of the action downtown after the Habs Game 6 win

See our livestream from Tour des Canadiens.

Last night in Montreal, history was made. The Montreal Canadiens defeated the Las Vegas Golden Knights in Game 6 of their series. This means that the Habs advance to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 1993.

It would not be a Canadiens win without a mob of rowdy fans. Cult MTL‘s very own Mr. Wavvy was live in Downtown Montreal to capture all of the madness. Reporting live from Tour des Canadiens Condos, we had a bird’s eye view of the celebrations. This included a plethora of fireworks, cheering and even a flipped police car.

There is no question that St-Jean celebrations added fuel to the fire. A loss could have meant coming back to win Saturday but a win felt incredibly special on both the holiday and a Strawberry Moon. This was a celebration of hockey, a celebration of Quebec and a celebration of the Montreal Canadiens being back where they belong.

Take a look at the livestream footage below:
