The Habs just put up a billboard in Toronto to troll the Leafs

It's safe to say that the Montreal Canadiens are feeling pretty comfortable in their Toronto bubble. 

On Thursday, the team and bitter rival to the Leafs, erected a huge billboard over Toronto's Gardiner Expressway that says, "#GoHabsGo" with the caption, "Views."

The sign comes as a hilarious but cruel reminder that Toronto's team will not be competing in the remainder of the NHL playoffs and Habs fans are loving it.

Leafs fans are, of course, not too thrilled. 

While the Habs have secured their spot in the playoffs Wednesday night in Toronto, the Leafs were unfortunately defeated by the Columbus Blue Jackets, meaning they will not be able to continue.

Toronto and Edmonton are home to the NHL hubs. The two cities will be hosting the NHL playoffs which began on Aug. 11.

The Stanley Cup final will take place in Edmonton in October.
