Sports Céline Dion says she had 'nothing to do' with that scandalous Golden Knights photo
Canadiens will face Golden Knights in Stanley Cup semifinals
Vegas, baby! The Canadiens will be headed to Las Vegas to start the Stanley Cup semifinals. The Vegas Golden Knights beat the Colorado Avalanche 6-3 Thursday night in Las Vegas to win the West Division final 4-2. The Avalanche won the first two games of the best-of-seven series before the Golden Knights came back and won four straight. The Canadiens advanced to the Stanley Cup semifinals by sweeping the Winnipeg Jets in the North Division final. The second Stanley Cup semifinal series will have the defending-champion Tampa Bay Lightning taking on the New York Islanders.
Habs fans can now focus on hockey: Céline Dion says she had "nothing to do" with the photo of her in Golden Knights gear that sent shockwaves across social media and led to questions about her allegiances.
Dion, a native of Charlemagne, Que. who performs in Las Vegas, clarified the situation in a Twitter post on Thursday, wishing everyone a happy Fête Nationale, the province's annual June 24 holiday.

Stu Cowan: Don't bet on Canadiens to win in Vegas
I’d love to predict the Canadiens will beat the Golden Knights in their Stanley Cup semifinal series that begins Monday night in Las Vegas (9 p.m., CBC, SN, TVA Sports, TSN 690 Radio, 98.5 FM). A trip to the Stanley Cup final would be a great boost for the city of Montreal as it starts to come back to life after COVID-19 lockdown with bars and restaurants re-opening, and for a Canadiens franchise that hasn’t been to the final since winning its record 24th championship in 1993. It would also be great for hockey in this country, since no Canadian team has won the Stanley Cup since the Canadiens 28 long years ago.
An image of Dion appeared on the screen at T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas prior to Game 5. Internet sleuths later concluded the image had been digitally altered.
The Canadiens are set to face off against the Golden Knights tonight in Montreal, with a 3-2 series lead.

Where does Céline Dion’s heart beat now? Hockey fans have been asking the question since the team from where she lives began facing the team from where she grew up in the playoffs for the first time. We may now have an answer, and if you thought it was the bleu-blanc-rouge, think twice, because you’ve been misled. A photo of Dion in a Knights helmet and jersey was shared on the big screen at the T-Mobile Arena before Tuesday night’s Habs-Knights playoff game.
