Hot off his successful bet with Boston's mayor, Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre is working out the details, on Twitter, of a bet New York's Bill de Blasio over the outcome of the Habs-Rangers playoff series.

Coderre began asking de Blasio for a friendly wager last Friday, but the New York mayor did not respond until Monday, after the Rangers downed the Habs 7-2 in a weekend game that also saw star goalie Carey Price injured.

Coderre won several prizes in his bet with Boston Mayor Marty Walsh — the Habs flag will fly over Boston City Hall and Walsh will have to wear the team's jersey.

So, when de Blasio bet him only a Rangers jersey and a bag of bagels, Coderre wanted to sweeten the deal. Check out the exchange below.
