VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – The Green Men were back at Boston’s TD Garden last night, but Force says Boston fans were too distracted to give them any trouble, this time.
“The Bruins were up 4-0 after 10 minutes, they were just so focused on the fact that they were going to go to Game 7, they were kind of leaving us alone,” says Force. “There was no threats of violence, no beer throwing.”
He says the funniest part of the night came each time a Canucks fan started to leave the building.
All the Boston fans nearby would get up and give the person a standing ovation.
“We really thought the Canucks were going to take it home and when you’re out of the game only 10 minutes in, it’s really deflating to know you’re going to have to sit there and watch these guys get pummeled for another two hours.”
Game 4 saw Vancouver’s most beloved mascots smacked, kicked and heckled mercilessly, but those days are finally over. The Green Men will be back on home turf in their trademark skin-tight get-ups for Game 7 at Rogers Arena Wednesday night.
