How bad does your night have to be going for you to fight your own fans?
They were even throwing haymakers in the stands
Bruins fans should honestly be embarrassed for their behavior during Game 5 against the Blues.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Benjamin Hochman posted a video a reader shared with him of a bunch of B’s fans duking it out up in the upper deck. It looks at first like a dumb dispute between two guys, but then two more clowns start throwing down right in front of them and the two fights eventually bleed together.
But that’s just an isolated incident, so it’s not fair to say that it was a bad look for all Bruins fans. There’s no excuse for the crowd’s reaction to the crucial missed tripping call against Tyler Bozak, though.
Bozak clearly tripped Boston’s Noel Acciari in the third period but no penalty was called and the Blues took advantage by scoring what proved to be the game-winning goal.
The fans responded by throwing all sorts of trash onto the ice, enough that the PA announcer was forced to come on the loudspeaker and ask them to stop.
That’s never a good look.
He’s a hockey player
Bruins fans at least started the night in a good mood. Captain Zdeno Chara was in the lineup for Game 5, despite a broken jaw and the fans in Boston sure were happy to see him.
He certainly didn’t play like a guy with a broken jaw, though.
Where was Kyrie?

Source close to the situation confirms that Kyrie Irving and several Brooklyn Nets players were all at the 40/40 club last night, but they weren't together. Each group had their own private room, hence the confusion.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) June 6, 2019
I can’t wait for three more weeks of this.
