Montreal Canadiens’ pregame on-ice video intro is far out, man (vid)

Before the Montreal Canadiens hit the ice at Belle Center for its Game 3 showdown with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday, a fantastic pregame video show chronicling the majesty, tradition and storied history of the organization was shown utilizing the ice surface as the screen.

The mesmerizing spectacle was then followed by a kid skating around on the ice carrying a torch while awash in smoke and an eerie red spotlight.

Far freaking out, man. All that intro needed was a some Pink Floyd playing and it would have resembled a spaced-out visit to the Planetarium for a trippy laser light show.
