Bruins Fan Gets Into It With Tampa Bay Mascot

BOSTON (CBS) –  The Boston Bruins are known as a physical bunch on the ice, and apparently their fans are the same off it.

A man in a Bruins Stanley Cup Champion T-Shirt at Tuesday’s game against the Lightning in Tampa Bay did not take too kindly to their mascot, Thunderbug, spraying him with silly spray.


After getting sprayed, the fan stood up and shoved Thunderbug. He was grabbed by security and escorted out, but had a few words with Thunderbug on his way.

The Bruins lost Tuesday’s game 5-3. The Bruins and Lightning played in the Eastern Conference Finals last season, with the Bruins winning in seven games in dramatic fashion.

    Typical Bruins fan, getting mad at a freaking MASCOT, lol. No, Toucher and Rich, he was NOT sprayed “point blank” in the face. More Typical Bruins fans.

      Sabrina – are you that gorgeous blonde goddess in the video? Sorry, I meant super fat pig mullet. I just assume in Tampa Bay she’s a model.

    I see a man defending himself after a clear case of battery. You can’t spray anything on somebody who does not want it done. To sneak up behind someone and do it while they are a paying customer makes it even worse. Tampa Bay should refund this man’s money and then give him free luxury box tickets to the next Bruins game there. That way an over zealous mascot can’t harass an innocent unsuspecting paying customer.

    Hit the guy right in the eye. What kind of reaction was the guy in the suit expecting?

  • Jay26

    I’m pretty sure that was illegal.

  • Aladin Sane

    the mascott shouold have gotten a 5 minute major and a game misconduct. or at the very least an interference penalty for stopping a fan from watcing the game.
    wonder if teh NHL will make it manditory for fans to head prodection from now on?

    What a shock. A city that knows nothing about hockey has an inbred mascot with trailer park trash fans, Nice to see Bettmans sun belt expansion is going so well. B’s fan shoulda dropped the mascot.

    The guy just made himself look like a complete tool, get some anger management therapy poor little Bruins fan.

    The Bruins fan (?) is an idiot! I have been a Boston Bruins fan for 40 years, and as far as I am concerned this guy is not a Bruins fan. He is not a hockey fan. He is just a jerk. Grow the heck up!

    i whacked raymond for throwing crap at me last year at a rays game, so what! thats what he gets for throwing silly string at em

  • James P. Tuttle

    I am a long time Bruins fan and the guy is a thug. Don’t defend him. So he got a little wet. Who cares? If he wasn’t a Bruin’s fan, everyone would be attacking him. Write him off as a hooligan and don’t defend him because he is our hooligan!!

  • don
