MONTREAL -- Thousands of hockey fans jammed into downtown Montreal on Wednesday night after the Canadiens clinched their playoff series against the arch-enemy Boston Bruins to move closer to their first Stanley Cup in more than 20 years. 2017 Herre/Dame Adidas Ultra Boost Hvid/Sort/Moon BB6066 . Droves emerged from downtown bars, while many of the 21,000 people who packed the Bell Centre to watch the Habs 3-1 victory over the Bruins on giant screens also hit the streets. As the game played in Boston came to an end, even Montreal police officers stationed on Ste-Catherine Street pumped their fists in celebratory manner. Outside the Bell Centre after the game, someone put a Bruins jersey on a hockey stick and set it on fire as people began stomping on it. Riot police intervened immediately and hauled it away while a raucous crowd continued cheering and screaming, "We Want the Cup." Some fans set off fireworks in what initially looked like peaceful celebrations. Police reported fewer than 10 arrests, mostly for mischief, less than an hour after the game had ended. Many fans stood on other peoples shoulders and chanted the names of their hockey heroes as police guarded the stores on Ste-Catherine. The victory sent Montreal -- the only Canadian team to make the NHL playoffs this year -- into the Eastern Conference final against the New York Rangers in a series that begins Saturday afternoon. The Canadiens are looking for their first Stanley Cup since 1993. Prime Minister Stephen Harper hailed Montreals victory with a tweet: "Great to see a Canadian team finally take out the Bruins in a game 7." Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau tweeted, "Bravo les boys!" The Bell Centre was a sea of red, white and blue during the decisive match as fans took advantage of $10 tickets to watch the game 500 kilometres away. Some of the proceeds were destined for a Canadiens charity fund for children. There were reports of people selling tickets for $50 in the hours leading up to the game. Mario Trudelle attended the game with his wife, their two children and three other kids. Everyone in the gang was wearing a Canadiens top except one young Bruins fan. "We accept everybody," said Trudelle, who predicted a 4-2 Montreal victory. Team spokesman Donald Beauchamp said the 21,000-odd tickets sold out in two hours. Police were hoping the event wouldnt turn into a repeat of 2010 after fans at the Bell Centre watched the Canadiens eliminate the Penguins in a game played in Pittsburgh. Mayhem ensued in downtown Montreal, with store windows smashed and rioters clashing with police. Police have beefed up their playoff presence in recent years and always have a strong visibility downtown before and after games, particularly for series-deciding matchups. A team spokeswoman confirmed that alcohol would be sold at the Bell Centre on Wednesday night Beauchamp said authorities have done a good job "as far as prevention with what happens post-Canadiens games." "What happened in the past was not necessarily people who were at the venue," he said. "It was people who were not necessarily in the building." Adidas Ultra Boost Danmark .

LOUIS -- Known for his game-managing and defensive skills, Yadier Molina made another statement with his bat.Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - The ageless Jaromir Jagr scored on the power play with 1:21 left in overtime to send the New Jersey Devils past the Ottawa Senators, 3-2, on a somber night at Canadian Tire Centre. Saturdays game was the first for the Senators following the tragic shooting of a Canadian soldier in downtown Ottawa on Wednesday. A moment of silence was held for the victim prior to the national anthems, with both teams circling members of the Canadian Armed Forces at center ice. The emotional vibe in the arena gave way to disappointment as the Senators had their four-game winning streak snapped. The Devils ended their four-game skid as Damon Severson scored a goal and assisted on Marek Zidlickys tally. Cory Schneider, one day after losing in a shootout against the Stars, made 33 saves in the victory. Ottawas Bobby Ryan netted the game-tying goal with 6:09 left in regulation, but his teammate, Clarke MacArthur, caught Zidlicky in the face with a high stick with 2:23 left in the extra session. A turnover in the neutral zone saw Adam Henrique lead Jagr in stride, and the 42-year-old future Hall-of-Famer wristed his 19th career oovertime goal past Robin Lehner. Herre Hvid Tilbud Adidas Ultra Boost X Yeezy Boost. Lehner made 26 saves in the setback. The Senators, who had not played since last Saturday, wasted two power-play chances in the opening period but cashed in on one midway through the second. Alex Chiasson top-shelved a wrister coming in from the corner at the 10:09 mark, and the equalizer was scored 1:20 later, as Severson netted his fourth of the season with a blistering slap shot from the right circle. Severson fed Zidlicky for a one-timer on the power play with 3:15 remaining in the middle stanza, and it stayed a 2-1 game until Ryan evened things. A hustle play by Milan Michalek kept the Senators in the offensive zone while on a power play. Michalek was taken down to the ice but managed to poke a pass over to Erik Karlsson, who found Ryan between a pair of defenders in front for a snap shot that beat Schneider.
