Vancouver Riot Photos Show Devastation, Shock, Stupidity Following Canucks-Bruins Game 7

The City of Vancouver rioted on Wednesday night, deep into the night following the Canucks' loss in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals to the Boston Bruins. Cars were overturned, police officers were attacked, fires broke out and pepper spray wafted through the evening-to-late-night air as Vancouver Police fought to take back the streets. 

CTV reported several stabbings. The awning of a department store caught on fire after a car underneath it was engulfed in flames. Across the street from that scene, looting took place at various stores in the area. 

It was just absolute mayhem in the streets of Vancouver on Wednesday night, and it's likely that the damage estimates will come in well into the millions. Here are a few of the stunning photos from the scene, courtesy of our partners at the AP, the Canadian Press and Getty Images.








These next two are of the same car. This BMW was flipped and set on fire, and the flames eventually spread to the awning on the Bay Company store it sat in front of. It's also the same car that some guy fell into when he tried to jump it. Yes, while it was burning






Goodnight, Vancouver.
