A fan who attended Monday's Western Conference Finals game reportedly has filed a police report alleging Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford sprayed him with water during Chicago's Game 4 loss in Los Angeles.

According to a report on Wednesday from TMZ, 27-year-old Clark Wong -- who was reportedly heckling Crawford -- filed a report with the police on Monday seeking battery charges after allegedly being "sprayed" in the face by Crawford.

Citing a conversation with Wong, TMZ said the Kings fan was sitting behind the Blackhawks bench when he began heckling Crawford after the goalie was pulled from the net toward the end of Chicago's 5-2 loss. Wong was subsequently ejected from the Staples Center but filed the report with police before exiting. The report claims Wong suffered "serious irritation to his eyes" and planned to seek medical treatment.
