Calgary Mayor Jyoti Gondek wore an NHL jersey for the Edmonton Oilers at a City Council meeting. It is reported by CTV News.
In addition, Gondek painted his face in the colors of Edmonton, and several other members of the city council also entered. That was the result of the dispute he entered into with the mayor of Edmonton, Amarjit Sauhi, to win his clubs head-to-head in the quarterfinals of the NHL playoffs. Edmonton ended up winning the series 4-1.
“The point is not that we are all Oilers fans, but that we lost a bet in the battle for Alberta (as the Edmonton and Calgary games are called. – RBC). I’m guessing there’s some makeup on my face that’s causing me a lot of itchiness and discomfort today, but I bet there’s a bet. The most important point of this bet was to contribute to the treatment of childhood cancer”, said Gondek.
As part of the dispute, the Calgary administration donated money to the Edmonton Children’s Cancer Foundation.
Edmonton ultimately failed to reach the Stanley Cup Finals, losing in the semifinal series to the Colorado Avalanche in four games. In the second semifinal, the New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning face each other, the score there in the series is 2-2.
The fifth match will take place on June 8 (starting at 03:00 Moscow time) in Tampa. The betting company Fonbet accepts bets on the victory of Tampa with a coefficient of 1.95, on the victory of the Rangers – with a coefficient of 3.25.
