Nearly a week after the Montreal Canadiens eliminated the Boston Bruins from the NHL playoffs, Boston mayor Marty Walsh has honoured the bet he made with his Montreal counterpart Denis Coderre.
Walsh posted a photo on his Twitter account this afternoon — albeit a sideways one — of a Montreal Canadiens flag flying on a pole outside Boston's City Hall, alongside the American flag and the flag of the state of Massachusetts.
The flag, which Coderre apparently provided for Walsh, is much smaller than the other flags flying over Boston's city hall.
The terms of the bet also state the loser has to visit the winner's city.
The Canadiens eliminated the Bruins in a hard-fought Game 7 last Thursday night, for the right to meet the New York Rangers in the conference final.
