Canucks loss deteriorates into mayhem

The stench of urine, feces, smoke and alcohol wafted in the air in front of CBC. Youth stood on building roofs, screaming "F-ck the Bruins!"

Kids -- probably teenagers -- smashed windows of the Canada Post building, Loud cheers ensued. One angry fan confronted the kid for it and choked him, leading to an angry confrontation.

 

People stood on tipped-over urinals, and police are telling people to go home but no one budged. 

 

Mostly young fans continued to break the windows of the Canada Post building.

 

Vancouver Police were calm, asking fans to leave the "unlawful area", but most fans appeared to egg on the riots, cheering whenever someone threw glass bottles and smoke bombs at the police.
