habs win Montreal Canadiens

Watch the Habs celebrate after their big win: “A night we’ll never forget”

Savour the moment.

For the first time since 1993, the Habs are going to the Stanley Cup Finals. It was a game to remember, with another stellar performance by Carey Price, who made 37 saves. Shea Weber and Cole Caufield scored a goal apiece in the first and second periods before the game went into overtime. The game-winning goal was scored by Artturi Lehkonen with a perfect pass by Phillip Danault.

Check out the video below to sample the excitement on the ice as the Habs celebrated with their coaching staff and general manager Marc Bergevin.

As Sugar Sammy put it below, it was the best St-Jean Baptiste Day in recent memory.

Habs super fan Jay Baruchel delivered his traditional post-win message, followed by assertions that the Montreal Canadiens are going to win the Stanley Cup. (They just have to beat either the New York Islanders or Tampa Bay Lightning, TBD in their series game 7 tonight.)
