Riots after Canucks' Stanley Cup defeat

Son of a bitch, waking from my sound sleep this morning I thought Canada had joined the Muslim world and started to overthrow the Canadian Government.
But no, the Canucks had their ass's handed to them last night and lost game 7, And the Stanley Cup!
That and they ran out of labatts and Molson, the combo of the two traumatic experiences was just to much for the Canadian people to handle.
Maybe next year Canada, you will have a team worthy of the Stanley Cup, but once again an American team owns it for now.

Riot police in Vancouver used tear gas to quell violence that broke out after the Vancouver Canucks lost the final game of the Stanley Cup.

Cars were set on fire and shops were looted following the ice hockey team's 4-0 defeat to the Boston Bruins.

Mobs of angry fans roamed central Vancouver after the game, as thick acrid smoke rose over the city centre.

Similar riots broke out in the Canadian city after the Canucks lost the Stanley Cup in 1994.

Record crowds of supporters gathered in the heart of the city on Wednesday in the hope of seeing their team - the favourites - secure the Stanley Cup and be crowned winners of the National Hockey League (NHL).

But hope quickly turned to gloom after the Boston Bruins scored first and then went on to secure an emphatic victory.
