Riots Erupt in Vancouver After Boston Bruins Win Stanley Cup

Elsa/Getty Images(VANCOUVER, British Columbia) -- Fans of the Boston Bruins took to their city streets Wednesday night to celebrate their team’s 4-0 victory in game seven of the NHL final to capture the Stanley Cup.

But in Vancouver, it was a different scene.  Fans of the losing Vancouver Canucks took to the streets in disappointment, overturning cars and even setting some of them on fire.

Riot police were also confronted in downtown Vancouver by crowds of people chanting obscenities, throwing beer bottles, lighting bonfires and tossing firecrackers.
