I watching most of the NHL playoffs, if you didn't it sure was a good one with some exciting games played throughout the postseason. Most people that I know just do not understand why hockey is such a great game. What is there not to love about hockey, it has the physical play of the NFL and up and motion of the NBA. 

In the Stanley Cup Finals, the Canucks HAD a commanding 2-0 games lead over the Boston Bruins. All the Canucks needed to do is win 2 more games to finally bring home a Stanley Cup for the Canucks. They were unable to do this and won just 1 game in the 5 games.

After the game riots broke out in Vancouver(where the Bruins defeated the Canucks).The Bruins won with great defense and goalkeeping throughout the series.

Police struggled to contain the crowd with tear gas as fires erupted in busy downtown intersections, storefronts were smashed by looters grabbing everything in sight and people dangled from light poles.
