Watch the Bell Centre erupt after Dale Weise Game 7 goal

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

More than 20,000 people crammed into the Bell Centre in Montreal on Wednesday night to watch a game in Boston. And they seem to be enjoying themselves.

How big of a deal is hockey in Montreal? The Canadiens sold out the Bell Centre to watch their Game 7 against the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night. Normally, that wouldn't be all that noteworthy except for the fact that it's a game that is being played in Boston.

It seems to be a pretty festive environment, too, as the place absolutely erupted when Dale Weise, one of Montreal's surprising playoff heroes to this point, scored just three minutes into the first period to give the Canadiens a 1-0 lead.
