BOSTON (CBS) — The Bruins and Canucks have played just once this season since their memorable meeting in last year’s Stanley Cup Final, so you’d think the rivalry may have cooled down a bit between the two fan bases. It clearly hasn’t, though, for at least one fan in British Columbia who made it known that the Vancouver native who plays for the Bruins is no hometown hero.

Lucic’s girlfriend, Brittany Carnegie, tweeted a photo of Lucic’s church in Burnaby, British Columbia. The picture showed graffiti that said “[Expletive] Lucic” and “Go Canucks Go.” The graffiti also included male genitalia painted next to the words.

The Vancouver Sun reports that the church is the St. Archangel Michael Serbian Orthodox Church in Burnaby.

“This is DISGUSTING!” Carnegie tweeted. “Punks did this to [Milan’s] beloved church! So disgusting!”

Lucic, 23, was born and raised in Vancouver, and he played his junior hockey for the Vancouver Giants, who put Lucic in the ring of honor last winter. He’s been on the Bruins since 2007, and when he raised the Stanley Cup at Rogers Arena last June, the Vancouver crowd cheered.

In this year’s meeting between the Bruins and Canucks, Lucic lasted just 3:54 into the game before he was given a game misconduct for leaving the bench during an altercation. The penalty was later rescinded.

    How do you know it’s a Vancouver fan? It could be a Bruins fan just trying to stir the pot. Or it could be someone who is not a fan at all. They have no idea WHO in fact did it.

    You’re ready to lump ALL Canucks fans into this? Niot even that,… all Canadians?? Give your head a shake!!

    I think the real issue is someone desecrated a church,… what was written is irrelevant.

      How do we know it’s a Vancouver fan? The person wrote “Go Canucks Go”. Could it be any clearer than that?

      I agree that lumping all Canadians into it is not right, and the fact that it’s a church is awful.

      1. stychentyme says:

        I could write “Long Live Bush,” but it doesn’t mean that I actually believe it.

        The person that did this might just have wanted to stir some controversey for his or her own amusement. Doesn’t necessarily mean they were a fan of the Canucks.

        My point is that the issue isn’t a Bruins fan vs. Canucks fan thing. The issue is, or should be, that someone vandalized a church. Regardless of what was written.

      You are an idiot.

  4. mmarcia says:

    it just shows that idiocy isn’t prevalent in just the US.

  5. Raylene says:

    After the riots I follow the aftermath in the Vancouver newspapers, and they were just as appalled as we were at the behavior of the fans. So don’t blame the Cadanidans blame the fools who did it. They make every one look bad who lives in Vancouver.

  6. JD says:

    Canucks fans are classless dolts!

    Let’s go Rangers

  7. Joe says:

    Stay classy Vancouver ……………

  8. Joe says:

    If Canada ever gets invaded by a foreign country, I hope we send all our forces to the border and stop. Just sit there, protect our side and no matter how much they beg us, never step foot into Canada.

    1. stychentyme says:

      What does that have to do with vandalism of a church?

      1. Joe says:

        Directly? Nothing. However, it has everything to do with one of many examples of the hatred that mostly French Canadians have for America. Though the numerous booings of our national anthem is at the top of that list.

      2. Stanley11 says:

        British Columbia is not a French Canadian Province

  9. steve g says:

    am i the only one that thinks chara is not only overpaid but overrated….are any of you watching the number of turnovers this stiff is responsible for….it just never ends

  10. Jim Haines says:

    That is totally disgusting! You don’t desacrate a house of the Lord, be it Catholic, be it Protestant, be it Eastern Orthodox! God will take care of whatever (bleep) hole did that to his house! Also, Lucic is in the same league with Brady & Welker, he is an untouchable in this town! Keep your Paws off him!

  11. steve g says:

    another goal given up by chara..what else is new

  12. James says:

    Just shows you how classless Canuck fans are!!! While having Pro Sports teams win world titles is great for fans at the end of the day its just a GAME!!!!!

    1. The Canuck says:

      If it was a Canucks fan, it only shows that this particular fan is classless. Not ALL Canucks fans go out at night vandalizing churches.

      Is there no end to the gross generalizations on this thread?

  13. Wabush says:

    He didn’t even spell “Canucks” right.

    So much for a Canucks fan… Generalizations. And that Joe guy is laughable ahahah. MURICA
