Hockey Fans Clash in Street Brawl between Canucks and Maple Leafs Supporters

I’m sure the action between Toronto and Vancouver on Saturday was exciting, but not as exciting as the after-party. The host Canucks defeated the Leafs 4-1, so the mood in Vancouver was generally positive.

The visiting Leafs fans were undoubtedly dissatisfied with the game.
At least two of them caused a commotion in downtown Vancouver when a street brawl erupted between fans.

At least a half-dozen people were involved, with another dozen or so caught in the crossfire:

Unfortunately this is nothing new when it comes to how hockey altercations occur in Vancouver. Look no further then when the Canucks lost Game 7 of the Stanley Cup in 2011 to the Bruins:

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
