The Montreal Alouettes enjoyed Game 7 on Monday night between the Canadiens and Maple Leafs.
Goalie Carey Price backstopped the Habs to a 3-1 win in the do or die match-up at Scotiabank Arena with 26 saves. That was the final victory as Montreal came back from 3-1 down in the series to advance to the second round and send the blue and white out in the first round yet again.
The Als tweeted: Bye bye Toronto with an LOL emoji. Can’t wait to see the next round for our Canadiens. Well done guys! Go Habs Go!
Montreal will take on the Jets in the second round. The Blue Bombers welcomed the Habs to the Manitoba capital Willie Jefferson style.
