Montreal mayor has big plans for Habs fans for the Stanley Cup Final

It's been a long time since the Montreal Canadiens last made it to the Stanley Cup Final, 28 years to be exact. Canada is slowly coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic with vaccination rates climbing each and every day. With restrictions being eased in Montreal, the city's mayor Valerie Plante is trying to organize outdoor gatherings so that fans can get together safely to watch every game of the Stanley Cup Final.

"Since last Thursday, and the accession of our @CanadiensMTL to the final of the @StanleyCup, we are working very hard on different scenarios that would allow CH fans to see the matches of the final, outdoors and in complete safety," Plante said in a tweet.

"We are still waiting for the green light from public health, because the enthusiasm for the final, and a first cup in 28 years, would certainly cause large gatherings, which is still not allowed by the authorities, despite the passage in the green zone," she added.

Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final is set for tonight at 8 p.m. ET. Nothing has been announced yet by the City of Montreal for a watch party for Game 1.
