If The Canadiens Keep Winning, Invest In Tear Gas

Before tonight's Game 7 against the Penguins, the City of Montreal and the Canadiens asked fans to behave themselves if the Habs happened to win.  Since Canadiens fans have a history of rioting after big wins there was cause for concern.  Still, Habs legend Rejean Houle calmed everyone by saying "I know our fans will have fun but in respect and dignity."

Well now Montreal fans have gone and turned Rejean Houle into a dirty, dirty liar.

After Montreal's 5-2 win, the AP posted an "everything is fine, nothing to see here" piece applauding the fans.  That piece has since morphed into a "the end is nigh dystopian nightmare vision."  Habs fans decided to go all "Escape From Montreal" on everyone.  Items have been thrown at cops, not-so-delicious tear gas was launched into the crowd, and "fans" topped it all with some local-business looting.

If this is what they do after winning a conference semifinal, I don't want to know what will happen if they actually do win the Cup.
