On Friday, the Montreal Canadiens tweeted at Jimmy Fallon and proposed a bet: if the Canadiens beat the Rangers, Fallon must wear a Canadiens jersey during one of his monologues. If the Rangers win, Jimmy Fallon’s face will serve as the Canadiens’ Twitter avatar.
During the ensuing back-and-forth Fallon showed some hesitancy before counter-proposing with what is now the official bet (confirmed during his monologue on Friday night’s show): in addition to what the Canadiens first proposed, if the Rangers win, the Canadiens’ Twitter account must tweet out 10 pictures of their mascot walking around Montreal with a Rangers jersey on.
After the Canadiens accepted Fallon’s counter, the Rangers tweeted: “We got you @jimmyfallon! #NYRPlayoffs.”
