Riot Breaks Out After Game In Vancouver

Police track down three Vancouver riot suspects across US


According to a Toronto Star report, the Vancouver Police Department has located three individuals who they suspect took part in Vancouver’s Stanley Cup riot.

The riot followed the Boston Bruins defeat of the Vancouver Canucks on June 15, 2011. As CBC reported shortly after the event, at least 140 people were injured during the rioting.

It also leD to plenty of negative media attention. CBC named it the top news story of the year in British Columbia.

The three suspects are believed to be in Illinois, Alaska, and Washington. One of them is a Canadian citizen who is thought to be studying in the States, but the other two are Americans.

“All three are aware that there is warrant out for them right now,” said Vancouver Police Constable Brian Montague.

They have been advised that they will be arrested if they attempt to enter Canada and the possibility of extradition hasn’t been ruled out.

Two-for-two: Another successful coach’s challenge as Sens reverse Kane’s goal

Coaches are quickly getting the hang of this challenge thing.

Following Mike Babcock’s successful challenge in Toronto’s opening-night loss to Montreal on Wednesday, Babcock’s provincial rival — Sens head coach Dave Cameron — got it right as well, successfully reversing Evander Kane‘s would-be equalizer in the third period.

From the league:

At 10:34 of the third period in the Senators/Sabres game, Ottawa requested a Coach’s Challenge to review whether Buffalo was off-side prior to Evander Kane’s goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with NHL Hockey Operations staff, the Linesman determined that Buffalo’s Zemgus Girgensons was off-side prior to the goal. According to Rule 78.7, “The standard for overturning the call in the event of a ‘GOAL’ call on the ice is that the Linesman, after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Toronto Video Room, determines that one or more Players on the attacking team preceded the puck into the attacking zone prior to the goal being scored and that, as a result, the play should have been stopped for an “Off-side” infraction; where this standard is met, the goal will be disallowed.”

Therefore the original call is overturned – no goal Buffalo Sabres.

The clock is re-set to show 9:32 (10:28 elapsed time), when the off-side infraction occurred.

As the league later noted, this was the first coach’s challenge under the offside scenario.

Video: Eichel’s first career NHL goal


Didn’t take long for Jack Eichel to make his mark at the NHL level.

The No. 2 overall pick at this year’s draft scored his first-ever NHL goal in his first-ever NHL game on Thursday night, cutting Ottawa’s lead to 2-1 in the third period of Buffalo’s season-opener.

Marcus Foligno and another new Sabre, Evander Kane, registered the assists on Eichel’s marker, which came on the power play.
