I'm also seeing lots of cars on the road sporting the Habs flags. Even saw one with a huge CH decal on the rear window yesterday.

So I did the next best thing. I had a friend of mine paint a large CH on the back window of my vehicle. This way it's there all year round, and I don't have to worry about anyone stealing it."

Pretty funny. What are the chances that it wasn't him?

Well, about a million cars going around Montreal (also coming from surrounding areas, like north and south shores), so chances are he ain't the only one with a Habs logo in the rear window.

I once saw a pick-up on the north shore that had a Pennywise logo in it's rear window, and Habs fans outnumber Pennywise fans at least twentyfolds.

Their in the Greater Toronto Area, so I'm guessing it could easily be him.

Fans are a little too cocky...I don't like that at all, it gives me a bad feeling.

I mean seeing fans with brooms, saying it'll be won in four, 8-1 tonight.

Bad bad feeling.

It depends what type of vehicle the poster saw. I drive a dark burgundy colored 2003Blazer. I was actually in the downtown area (Toronto) Wednesday morning.

While I was heading home late this afternoon, I saw two girls waving giant Habs flags at the corner of St-Viateur and Parc while cars passing by honked in approval. I think it was near the Greek dry cleaning place that has a bajillion Habs flags (and a Bruins towel?) in the window. I swear, that place had a jeep with about 8 Hab flags on it.

Also, at school today...a lot of Habs shirts and jerseys. Too bad I didn't wear mine.

The atmosphere is awesome bro! I just came back from the game, I think I stayed like 1hour after the game to celebrate with all the other fans and after that, the long road to my home with people pressing their "klaxon". It was amazing, I'm going again saturday, I'm exhausted lol

I know what you mean. From the Bell Center to Cresent St. took me 45 minutes. (Not that I'm complaining). It was so awesome and this was only after game 1.

To be honest, I felt that the atmosphere inside the Bell Center wasn't so great. I remember when we were playing the Canes two years ago I couldn't here my friend talking... Tonight it was ok, it's the start I hope it's gonna be better saturday

It always is!

The further the team goes, the crazier it gets! The people are just wild animals when it involves hockey.
