Your First NHL Playoff Fan Fight: Canucks vs. Blackhawks (Video)
Last night the Vancouver Canucks took Game 1 of their opening round playoff series against the Chicago Blackhawks, but although they may have eared the important victory on the ice, their fans were busy losing the battle in the stands.
Here is footage of what appears to be a disgruntled Blackhawks fan in a Jonathan Toews t-shirt throwing a barrage of punches to the face of a Canucks fan in a Roberto Luongo jersey. It is a scene that leaves me wondering how the rest of the Canucks fans could just stand by and allow one of their own to take a sh*t-kicking from a fan of the opposition in their own building?
Stick up for yourselves Canucks fans! This is the team that has knocked you out of the playoffs the previous two years. You just won Game 1 and took control of the series. Don’t allow them to gain any momentum via a post-game brawl.
This is the Stanley Cup playoffs. Start acting like it!
