Bruins fans throw garbage onto ice after overtime loss to Blackhawks


  • After a decade of nearly unprecedented success across North America’s major professional sports leagues, one can see why some Boston sports fans believe basic fan conventions don’t apply to them.
  • It is a cardinal rule — and common sense, really — for fans not to throw objects onto the playing surface, but a faction of the Bruins fan base clearly missed the memo on Thursday night.
  • Squaring off against the Chicago Blackhawks, Boston trailed 3-0 entering the third period, but submitted a valiant comeback effort as Joakim Nordstrom, Chris Wagner and Torey Krug all got on the board to force the game to overtime.
  • Jonathan Toews ultimately won the game for Chicago, and Bruins fans, perhaps shocked by the notion of losing for the first time in weeks, couldn’t keep it together.

  • It was Boston’s first loss since Nov. 16. The club hasn’t been defeated in regulation since Nov. 8.
  • In any event, it’s a rather puzzling reaction to a run-of-the-mill regular season game in December, although perhaps Bruins fans still harbour hard feelings towards the Blackhawks as a result of the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals.
  • The mood wasn’t completely ugly, however, as the Blackhawks made their mothers, who are currently travelling with the team, very proud.
