â†µDaniel Rahimi of the Swedish hockey team Rogle notched an overtime game-winner against AIK, only to attempt to silence the crowd with a Max Talbot-like finger to the mouth "shhhhh" move. And surprisingly, someone reacted worse toward it than Flyers fans did. Possibly because it was the second time this season that AIK fans have been subject to such taunting by the opposing team. â†µ
â†µOne fellow was so incensed that he broke through security and ransacked the Rogle bench, attacking one of the team managers. The reaction has reached full-on controversy in Sweden, where some are speculating that AIK could face punishment in the form of a huge fine or being forced to play in an empty arena. Not that it caught everyone entirely off guard; Rogle players and coaches had been warned that a violent reaction from fans was a viable scenario. â†µâ†µ
