My prediction that Boston would win and score 4 goals was correct, however I gave a bit too much credit to Vancouver's ability to put up a fight and instead of scoring 3 goals like I predicted they ended up with 0 thanks to the amazing play of Tim Thomas... who ended up winning the Conn Smythe Trophy (playoff MVP award).
After the game, riots broke out in Vancouver and they clearly were upset with the Canucks losing... Unhappy fans are burning and flipping cars, beating up Boston Bruins fans, breaking windows, clashing with riot police, looting, and setting fires throughout downtown Vancouver. Here's one link to a vid of the riots and here's another. Article written up after most of the mayhem can be found here. Here's a video of the stream of the riot I was watching last night.
All Canadians will now be depressed until the start of the new NHL season. Hahaha.
Here are some pics too... many of the more clear and awesome ones at the end are from the Globe and Mail website here:
