|Game 6 countdown, 5 p.m.: How will Vancouver watch?||at 5:01 pm ET|
Vancouver will once again see its people flock to the streets tonight to view Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals. The city of Vancouver is closing many streets in anticipation of all the people that will take to the streets to watch the game outdoors.
Friday night’s Game 5 drew more than 100,000 people to downtown Vancouver to watch the game on three large televisions at three outdoor viewing locations. Two dozen people were arrested, mostly for breach of peace and public intoxication.
'Our fan zones have been a big hit downtown throughout the playoffs, and we want to keep the positive celebrations going,” Mayor Gregor Robertson wrote in a statement.
There have also been other outdoor viewing locations outside of the city of Vancouver, which have drawn thousands of people. It was a rainy day Monday in Vancouver, which could effect the number of people who attend the outdoor viewing parties Monday night.
Fans can also watch the game at Rogers Arena, the home of the Canucks, for $10, with net proceeds going to charity.
