However, we also know that a fine array of CH players were on hand for the occasion. They included Nick Suzuki, Josh Anderson, Kaiden Guhle, Juraj Slafkovský, Arber Xhekaj (and his brother Florian) and Logan Mailloux.
And, of course, we mustn’t forget Youppi! who was also on hand.
We’re talking about two guys whose popularity ratings are pretty high in town, let’s say.
Well, they were already on their feet, but they got them “up” by galvanizing them.
After Xhekaj had introduced the next performer (Dean Brody), Suzuki took the microphone and began a classic Olé Olé Olé to energize the crowd before Brody’s arrival.
Just when I said the guys know how to get loved, here’s more proof.
A magical sequence that will surely remain etched in the minds of the many people in attendance.🤩🥰 https://t.co/T9zIU7oQf7

It’s a nice gesture on their part, and the CH fans on hand certainly appreciated it. In reality, it doesn’t take much to win over Montreal fans: all it takes is for the guys to make a minimum of effort to show that they identify a little with the city.
In short, a great time at the festival yesterday, and the popularity of the two guys may be even greater today. I don’t know if there was room for it to increase, but it probably did a bit yesterday.
