The Vancouver Canucks' season came to a heartbreaking but anticlimactic end as they were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the Edmonton Oilers last night, a result that historically has led to riots in Vancouver, prompting a statement from the police.

Heading into Game 7 against the Edmonton Oilers, many fans hoped for a close contest. However, the Oilers dominated early and maintained control throughout.

Post-game, there were widespread concerns about potential riots in Vancouver, a recurring issue after significant losses. A video claiming to show riots circulated on X, but the Vancouver Police Department quickly clarified.
We're not sure where you got this video, but this is not in Vancouver tonight.

Despite the disappointing playoff exit, the absence of riots is a positive development for Vancouver. The hockey community had braced for unrest, making the peaceful response a hopeful sign for the city's future.
The Edmonton Oilers will now face the Dallas Stars in the Western Conference Finals. Meanwhile, the Vancouver Canucks will focus on the off-season, aiming to recover and prepare for the next campaign.
