May 20, 2014
Just a week after upsetting the heavily-favoured Boston Bruins in a thrilling seven-game series in the second round of the NHL playoffs, the Montreal Canadiens find themselves in tough against the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference Finals. Down two games to none, the Habs must mount a comeback without the services of standout netminder Carey Price who sustained a series-ending knee injury resulting from a collision with the Rangers’ Chris Kreider in Game 1.
As you can see in the photos below, members of the McGill community wear their love of the Habs on their sleeves. Literally. Show your support for the team and send your pics to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Go Habs Go!
