Twitter Blows Up With Racist Reactions After P.K. Subban Scores Game Winner In 2nd OT

DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Boston Bruins fans blew up Twitter Thursday night following the team's 4-3 overtime loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

P.K. Subban ended up scoring the winning goal in the fifth minute of the second overtime.

Fans showing disappointment would have been completely understandable. But many of them took it to a whole other level, seeming to follow in the footsteps of Donald Sterling.

Because of our corporate policies, we can't put profane language on our website, so here's a summary of just some of the tweets we found:

-- That stupid n***** doesn't belong in hockey #whitesonly


-- PK Subban = F****** N*****

-- F*** PK Subban. F****** n*****. Wish he got sold

-- subban is the definition of a n*****

-- Someone needs to smack PK subban across his big n***** lips. #scumbag

-- SUBBAN IS A F****** PORCH M*****

-- F*** that stupid m***** #subban

-- F*** you subban you f****** lucky ass n*****!

-- Once again, Subban stop being a n*****

-- N***** was trending in Boston because P.K. Subban scored... It's a rare moment in my life to be ashamed to be a Bruins fan.

-- I bet the Bruins fans calling P.K. Subban a n***** on Twitter have no idea his brother plays for their minor league team.

-- the hashtag #N***** is trending in Boston after Subban's goal. Do they tweet this after a David Ortiz HR? f*** off Boston, be better.

-- N***** trending in Boston- #NHL another sport with issues

Bruins President Cam Neely issued a statement concerning the racist tweets Friday afternoon.

"The racist, classless views expressed by an ignorant group of individuals following Thursday's game via digital media are in no way a reflection of anyone associated with the Bruins organization," Neely said.
