On the brink of elimination, Montreal Canadiens rally in Game 4 to win 3-2 in overtime of this Stanley Cup Finals. Josh Anderson scored the goal that sparked cries and cheers of pure joy across Montreal hockey fans. Habs fans in the streets outside of the Bell Centre said “We needed a victory at home to pump up the entire Habs nation and now we’re going to Tampa and we’re coming back,”
Game 5 is set to be played on Wednesday in Tampa of this best-of-seven match-up. Game 4 was played in front of a crowd of around 3,500 with the stadium’s max capacity being 21,000. Even though the Montreal Canadiens asked to increase the limit of fans to 10,500 but were rejected. With the same amount of people, why did some fans think it felt larger? Mike Monture a spectator at Game 4 said he enjoyed the excitement. He even said that the crowd felt larger due to all the excitement and chanting.
Police were patrolling the streets Monday evening, to prevent the same issue that happened after they beat the Las Vegas Golden Knights. After that win, police had to disperse crowds with tear gas, people were aggressive to officers, and they were acts of vandalism.
