There’s no doubt that NHL fans are some of the most passionate in all of pro sports. When MLB went on strike in 1994 and forced the cancellation of the World Series, it took a whole decade for fans to come back. But this year, after enduring a completely unnecessary four-month lockout, NHL fans came back immediately and were as fervent as ever.
Is this a bad thing? Well, when it comes to not being pushed around by greedy owners and players it is. But when it comes time for playoff hockey this irrational passion is definitely an asset. No other fans go nuts for the playoffs like hockey fans. And today we’re going to celebrate their passion with this list of crazy NHL fans going all-out for the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
