Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre bets Boston's mayor the Habs will eliminate the Bruins. 3:58

Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre spent a few minutes on the phone today with Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to place a bet on the NHL playoff series between the Habs and the Bruins.

Coderre — in his Habs jersey — told Walsh that if Montreal wins, Walsh will have to wear a Habs jersey and fly a flag of the Montreal Canadiens at Boston City Hall for a week.

Coderre - and Montreal - will sport the Bruins' colours if that team wins.

“I like it. I’ll accept the bet,” Walsh said from Boston.

The losing mayor will also have to visit the winning city.
