As the NHL's most storied franchise, the Montreal Canadiens are no strangers to drama and pizazz. Nearly every home game at the Bell Centre in Montreal begins about 15 minutes late because of a long pre-game introduction that honors their history as a franchise.

Well, the Canadiens certainly outdid themselves on Sunday night, beginning Game 3 against the Tampa Bay Lightning with one of the craziest pre-game introductions ever.

If your eyes can't handle 3-D visuals, look away!

That's right: THEY SET THEIR OWN ARENA ON FIRE.

Not literally, of course, but the visuals are pretty damn impressive nonetheless. That's a serious 3-D video game the Canadiens just showed off. Your move, rest of the sports world.
