Disappointment Over NHL Playoffs Turns Violent

Feeling disappointed or upset when your favorite team is eliminated from the NHL playoffs is natural. However, taking your anger out on a fan of the opposing team is unacceptable. A member of the New Jersey Devils 'Woo Crew' is currently searching for a New York Rangers fan who allegedly sucker-punched him twice during last night's game. He has also shared a video of the incident on social media.

Incident Occurs After Devils' Goal

The altercation seems to have occurred following a goal by the Devils' Erik Haula, which led to New Jersey taking a 3-0 lead in Game 7 late in the third period. At this point, several Rangers fans appear to have decided to leave the arena, realizing that a comeback for New York was unlikely. This act displayed poor sportsmanship. The attacked 'Woo Crew' member was merely attempting to fulfill his role of engaging the crowd during the game.
