Carolina Hurricanes fans taunting David Pastrnak over his dead child

We all have our favourite hockey team, we love and likely all have trashed talked fans of other teams in all good fun, but these Carolina Hurricanes fans have crossed a line and this is disgusting. As you know the NHL playoffs are on their way with all 16 teams that made the playoffs are hoping this is their year, including the Carolina Hurricanes who had one of the best years in the teams existence.

Game one went to the Hurricanes in a very rowdy start to the series 5-1. 8 minutes into the first period of game two, David Pastrnak crashed into Hurricanes goaltender Antti Raanta taking him out of the series. The Carolina Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour accused the Boston Bruins of intentionally running his goalies, but things got very inappropriate when Hurricanes fans would send very disturbing messages to Pastrnak over the death of his baby he announced recently.

This is not right, hockey is just a game and for people to write such hateful comments to a family grieving is pathetic. Hopefully they realise this and apologise to the Pastrnak family.
