Biden and Trudeau bet on NHL Stanley cup final

Two of the world’s most powerful men are getting in on the action as the upstart Montreal Canadiens try to end Canada’s 28-year Stanley Cup drought by dethroning the Tampa Bay Lightning in the NHL championships, which begin Monday.

Just hours before game one of the best-of-seven final, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau proposed a wager to US President Joe Biden on who would win hockey’s most famous trophy.

“Right now, two of the top teams in the NHL are battling it out… @POTUS, how about a friendly wager?” Trudeau stated the following. “You’re on, pal,” Biden said simply. #GoBolts”
Neither leader indicated how much they were ready to risk, but the chances are now in Biden’s favour: the “Bolts” of Tampa Bay thrashed the Canadiens 5-1 in game one on Monday night.

Trudeau has been a lifetime supporter of the Montreal Canadiens, his hometown team.

The US President is also a hockey fan, stating in 2010 to media that he “fervently” supports the Philadelphia Flyers of his native state of Pennsylvania.
