Riot Alert!

From the Montreal Gazette:

What happens when you mix playoff-tense, beer-swilling Montreal hockey fans with amped-up boosters of the Ultimate Fighting Championship martial arts smackdown? Montreal sports bars – and police officers on the lookout for potential clashes – will find out tonight, when Game 5 of the National Hockey League Eastern Conference playoff series between the Canadiens and the Penguins in Pittsburgh is televised starting at 7 o’clock. UFC 113, a series of eight head-kicking bouts at the Bell Centre, starts at 7:30 p.m. and lands on pay-per-view TV at 10 p.m.
