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.

Watch: 

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.
