B’s Fans Trash The Ice

via the AP,
Andrei Markov scored the tiebreaking goal with 1.2 seconds left on Thursday night, giving Montreal a 3-2 victory over Boston and prompting a shower of garbage from the Bruins fans that convinced the officials to wave off the final two ticks of the clock. Markov took advantage of a power play that came when Matt Lashoff, the Bruins' first overall pick in the 2005 draft who was making his NHL debut, was called for holding with 45 seconds left. The Canadiens defenseman got the puck to the left of Tim Thomas and put it between his legs for the game-winner. While Montreal players - and some of their vocal fans in the Boston crowd - celebrated, others in the stands began throwing cups and other trash onto the ice. After about a minute, and a futile announcement from the public address announcer, the clock started and the buzzer blew while both teams were still at their benches and the ice crew was cleaning up.
added 10:52pm, from the Wicked Bruins Fan,
Okay… I just can’t put into words losing a game with 1.2 seconds on the clock… so I will come back to it. But Thomas?! He had all the time in the world to make a save on Markov. Just unbelievable. Bruins lose 3-2. Axelsson got an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and ten minute misconduct after the game-losing goal.
