Canadiens fans celebrate in streets following Game 3 win over Vegas (VIDEOS)

Jun 19 2021, 4:34 pm

Downtown Montreal was feeling the playoff magic last night following the Canadiens’ huge 3-2, come-from-behind overtime win to take Game 3 over the Vegas Golden Knights of their third-round series.

With two minutes left in the third period, the Canadiens looked like they were on pace to fall behind 2-1 in the series on home ice. They’d mustered just eight shots through the first two periods, and looked mostly overmatched against a strong Vegas side.

But a gaffe from Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury gifted Habs forward Josh Anderson his first goal of the night with 1:55 left in the third period, and a rebound scored off a rush 12:53 into overtime saw Anderson become the hero once again.

Chaos ensued, as you’d expect from such an emotional win.

Fireworks, hugging, crying, and yelling was everywhere in downtown Montreal, despite the on-and-off heavy rain.

Here’s a round up of some of the best videos around the Bell Centre.
