City says it's ready for potential trouble from Habs/Bruins series

City officials in Montreal say they're staying on high alert to prevent trouble as they prepare for the next home game between the Canadiens and the Bruins.

The city is working in tandem with the police to ensure hockey passion doesn't turn into a rampage with vandalism, looting and violence.

Anie Samson is a member of the city's executive committee in charge of security and says said the administration is prepared ahead of Tuesday's Game 3 at the Bell Centre.

In her words, "we are concerned about (potential problems), but we're working with the police and we have a plan."

She adds "we are ready and we hope it's going to work."

It's expected the city will decide whether to limit traffic on Ste-Catherine Street on game nights.

The downtown area is usually where celebrations become ugly.

The series is tied at 1.
