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.
