The worst a Bruins fan can be: Leafs fan punched out at Garden after Bruins loss

Seems a group of Leafs fans got jumped after Saturday's game at the Garden - and one of them was punched into unconsciousness.

"I had a cat scan done, I got three staples in the back of my head, swollen cheek, cut the inside my mouth, and concussed. I don't remember the end of the game because of it."

Thugs finding any excuse to attempt to legitimize their behavior in hoping fans will condone it.

That's called "a response"

Some douchebags decide to do a tribal beatdown on Leafs fans, this is what you get.

That’s called being ignorant, since it happened at the game prior to this incident.

But keep on keeping on anons. Your ability to always be wrong is magnificent.

That was last night, which was 2 days after the incident. Not that it makes it any better.

the idiot with the poster has gotten way more exposure in the MSM than the Leafs fan who was beat up by thugs will.

Agreed

...While both actions are examples of hideous behavior at sporting events, is holding up an offensive sign even in the same ballpark as cold-cocking an opposing fan who had the audacity to wear a different colored jersey in the other team's building.

Terrible.

There is no room for this in hockey. The B's aren't the club that I support and I find the Garden extremely hostile towards 'outsider' fans - I stopped wearing any colors to games that mark me as such.

It gets much worse if you're sitting towards the back. I know it's unfair to judge a fanbase based on the actions of a few bad apples, but it is one arena I don't feel 100% safe in even during regular season play. The confrontations I have confrontations I have experienced were downright nasty.

depends on your team, really.

depends on your team, really. vancouver, montreal, or penguins? youre gonna get a hostile reaction, some good natured, some not. but this is true at pretty much any arena with a passionate fanbase

Where is the Press when you need them?

I'd like to see this story get picked up by the local television news outlets. It would be a good thing to catch the guy who threw the punch and make it really clear that that sort of behavior will not be tolerated.

Don't worry

I'm sure that WBZ Radio will have this as "breaking news" for their Monday 7AM newscast in a couple of weeks. Far more important for them to interview the Marathon bombing suspects' hair stylist first.

Chance, the Perp isn't a resident of Boston or one of the immediate towns around here.

I can tell you all flat out the worse behavior during hockey games I've ever observed has come from Habs [Montreal] fans. HANDS DOWN the most obnoxious fans. This kind of stuff is par for the course in hockey. Nothing to see here,folks. I'm sure Toronto fans aren't particularly shocked.

Disgusting

I hope the perpetrators get identified and brought up on serious charges.
