Marty Turco makes a bet with a fan during the Blackhawks-Canadiens game

This is a story I just had to pass along to you all here on Defending Big D.

Apparently during yesterday's game between the Blackhawks and the Canadiens, after Montreal scored, a Canadiens fan, sitting next to Marty Turco, made a bet with Marty that the Blackhawks wouldn't score in the game. The Blackhawks scored, and the fan gave Marty a Canadian $5 bill with the words "Habs Rule" written in sharpie. After the second period, the fan bet triple or nothing that the Canadiens would win. No goals were scored. Then the fan bet 5 to 1 that the Canadiens would win and Marty took the bet. The Canadiens won in overtime on P.K. Subban's goal, and Turco paid back the fan the amount wagered. Included in that wad of money was the dollar bill the fan gave Marty, but he crossed out what the fan wrote and replaced it with "Turco rules."

In my opinion, I think this is hilarious. However, because Turco's betting on his team in the middle of the game, this may or may not get him in trouble with the league. It'll be interesting to see what happens if the league does in fact decide to take a look at this, but one thing's certain: Marty Turco just gained a new fan.

And here's the fan calling a radio station in Montreal talking about his bet with Turco.
