Karlssons Senators advanced to the Conference Final last night after defeating the New York Rangers 4-2. It’s the team’s first trip past the second round since 2007, so naturally fans got a bit rowdy.
But just a bit. This is Canada, after all. The celebration was polite, considerate, and probably followed by apologies.
As the traffic light switches from green to red, Sens fans spill out into the street and begin — well, I’m not sure how to describe this. It’s kind of like slam-dancing but nicer. I’ll just call it a Canadian glee hop.
The light flips back to green, and the celebration promptly stops so the normal flow of traffic would not be impeded.
This the most Canadian thing ever: Sens fans partying in the street, but only when the light turns red. Back to the sidewalk on green. pic.twitter.com/rXDykia3BN

I’m obligated to mentioned that Vancouver was not quite as considerate after their loss to the Bruins in 2011.
