ESPN is making a 30-for-30 documentary on the Vancouver Canucks riots after the Cup Final and what makes them so special.

Everyone knows that no hockey fans are as passionate as Canadian hockey fans, despite the Canadian cup drought that everyone is aware of at this point.
If you want to look at the impact of the Stanley Cup Finals on Canadian fans, look no further than the aftermath of game 7 of the Canucks-Bruins series in 2011. This fan response was such a media phenomenon that ESPN has made a mini documentary on it, set to premiere this Tuesday.
These riots were very memorable for everyone in Canada, even those who weren't watching the game just beforehand. It was insane to watch the fallout of it on the news, with so much chaos as a result of the verdict of the game.
This shows how crazy Canadian fans can be, with a mix of passion and alcohol being a catalyst for violence after watching your team lose the Stanley Cup on home ice.
Canucks fans especially are notoriously violent, even without the 2011 riots. They've always been abrasive to most of the rest of the league and are often voted as one of the most violent fanbases in the league. Not many people know that this riot was not the first they had, as they also held one after losing another game 7 to the Rangers in 1994.
Vancouver Canucks fans have definitely made a name for themselves, and not a good one. With the Canucks being a contending team once again, it's no shock that the fans are only going to get more passionate. Hopefully this time around the Canucks either win or get eliminated early, so the city of Vancouver can avoid disaster once again.
