Boston Bruins Fans Go On N-Word Power Play After Washington Capitals Joel Ward Scores Game-Winning GoalPosted in Blogroll on April 26th, 2012 by Ron Glover
Washington Capitals winger Joel Ward became the first Black player to score a game-winning goal in the NHL playoffs, it was a moment in the spotlight for the Ward who is Canadian-born, but of Barbados descent.
Until racism once again reared it’s ugly head.
Boston Bruins fans took to Twitter last night to use the N-word towards Ward whose goal sent the defending Stanley Cup Champions packing last night in Game 7 of their first round series against the Capitals.
Stay classy Boston.
