Bet with Jimmy Fallon leaves Canadiens mascot roaming Montreal in sorrow

9 Comments

Brimming with confidence, the Montreal Canadiens made a bet with Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon before the Eastern Conference Final against the New York Rangers started. When the Canadiens fell short, it was their mascot, Youppi!, that was forced to pay the price.

Youppi! wore a Rangers jersey with Fallon’s name on the back as he toured Montreal. It was clear though that Henrik Lundqvist’s series-winning shutout victory over Montreal was still on his mind:

The Canadiens will have to wait until next season before they’ll have a chance to lift Youppi!’s spirits.
