Gallery: Riots in Vancouver after hockey team thrashed in Stanley Cup decider

The Vancouver Canucks are beaten 4-0 by the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup decider – and fans aren’t best pleased.

RIOTING HAS BROKEN out in the Canadian city of Vancouver as angry ice hockey fans expressed their anger at the city team’s poor showing in the deciding match of this year’s Stanley Cup series.

The best-of-seven series had gone down to the final match, with the Vancouver Canucks expected to have the upper hand over the Boston Bruins given their home advantage – but a poor display saw the team fall to a heavy 4-0 defeat which left fans seething.

While their national rivals the Montreal Canadiens have won 24 titles, Vancouver’s fans have yet to taste Stanley Cup glory in the 41 years since the side joined the NHL – and their frustration showed on the streets afterwards.
