Youppi! makes good on bet, wears Rangers jersey around Montreal

When the Montreal Canadiens were eliminated by the New York Rangers, their mascot Youppi! lost a bet with Jimmy Fallon. So Sunday, Youppi! made good and wore a Rangers jersey around Montreal. Here is the sad, sad video.

In case you missed it, Montreal Canadiens mascot Youppi! lost a bet with late-night host Jimmy Fallon when the New York Rangers eliminated the Habs in the Eastern Conference final.

10 photos from Sunday here, the team went the extra mile and posted a sad, sad video of sport's favorite mascot moping around the city in Ranger Blue.
