The Sens-Habs hockey play-off series will also feature a showdown between Ottawa's Golden Palace egg rolls and the world famous Montreal smoked meat.

Mayor Jim Watson, who was born in Montreal, issued the challenge today to his Quebec counterpart and council today.

Watson says the losing Mayor will also have to fly the flag of the play-off winner at City Hall  for a week.

An Ottawa Senators rally is scheduled for Tuesday at 1.30 pm at City Hall.

The first game in the Ottawa-Montreal series is set for Thursday night at the Bell Centre.

It's the first Canadian NHL team play-off since 2004.
