Angry Fans Take To Streets In Vancouver








Cars set on fire in Vancouver following Stanley Cup finals loss

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Parked cars were set on fire, others were tipped over and people threw beer bottles at giant television screens following the Vancouver Canucks' 4-0 loss to the
Boston Bruins on Wednesday night in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals.

People chanted obscenities and some leaped over raging bonfires as riot police moved in to try to restore order in the downtown streets strewn with garbage and filled with acrid smoke.

The chaos was reminiscent of a similar scene that erupted in the city in 1994 following the Canucks' Game 7 loss to the New York Ranger
