Jimmy Fallon vs. Montreal Canadiens: The Twitter Bet

As per the tweets below, the deal is simple, yet impactful. If the Rangers win the series, Jimmy Fallon’s face will be the new avatar for the Montreal Canadiens twitter account (for a day) and if Montreal wins the series, Jimmy has to wear the Montreal Canadiens jersey for a monologue.
