After knocking off the Boston Bruins in the second round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Montreal Canadiens were feeling pretty confident heading into the Eastern Conference Finals against the New York Rangers. Thus, when they made a friendly wager with Jimmy Fallon, hockey expert, they were probably looking forward to seeing him wearing a Habs sweater during one of his monologues.

Theeeeen Carey Price got injured and they lost in six games. Oops.

So what did the Habs have to do to honor the bet? They had to send their mascot, Youppi! (whom they adopted from the Expos when they left town), out onto the streets of Montreal in a Rangers sweater and tweet 10 photos as proof.

Now that’s humiliation.

Take a look at sad Youppi! taking not one but ten for the team:

Poor Youppi! looks pretty damn lonely on the carousel, but at least he scored a great lunch. Scwartz’s makes a damn fine smoked meat sandwich.
