Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and Habs bet on NHL East final

Jimmy Fallon has raised the stakes in the NHL's Eastern Conference final.

The late night talk show host and the Montreal Canadiens agreed to a bet over Twitter on Friday night based on the outcome of the Habs best-of-seven playoff series with the New York Rangers.

If Montreal wins the series and advances to the Stanley Cup final, Fallon will wear a Canadiens jersey during one of his monologues on The Tonight Show.

If New York wins, the Habs will change their Twitter avatar to a picture of Fallon's choosing and Youppi, the team's mascot, will have to wear a Rangers jersey and have 10 photos of it taken around Montreal.

"We have a deal! It's on. I want Youppi on the mechanical bull at Chez Serge,'' Fallon said from his verified Twitter account, adding the hashtags enjoytheseries whatsyourjerseysize.

The Tonight Show is filmed at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in Manhattan, near Madison Square Garden, the home of the Rangers. Fallon is a native of New York City, having been born in the borough of Brooklyn.

The New York Rangers backed up Fallon online.

"We got you @jimmyfallon! NYRPlayoffs'' tweeted the official Rangers account.

  • Recycling deposit error headache for Montreal dad

    Just in time for school to start up again, Five Alive juice boxes are on sale at Loblaws and Maxis across town. If you've bought any of these products a CJAD listener warns: check your receipts, you may have paid an unjustified fee.

    A listener emailed us at yourstory@cjad.com to share his experience.

    Over the past few weeks, local dad Alfonso bought his kids packages of juice boxes from 2 different Maxis and a Loblaws in Montreal.

    The grocery stores charged him an extra 5 cents recycling deposit for each juice box - the trouble is, customers can't return juice boxes to reclaim their deposit like with cans or bottles.

    Gomez, a representative from the Office de la protection du consommateur, says Carlos should report the incident to them.

    "We can not all the time do single cases, but if you call us we keep the information," said Gomez. "If many contact us about the issue then we may do an investigation. We have to pick our fights."

    The Loblaws corporation says it is aware of the situation and claims it was simply an error.

    A Maxi employee says the grocer offered to refund the extra fees if customers bring in their receipts, but Loblaws still won't accept juice boxes in return for past charged deposits.
