Canucks GM Mike Gillis was critical of law enforcement following the Game 7 loss, claiming police exhibited "an obvious bias" against the rioters. Gillis backed up his assertion citing statistics which showed 75 rioters were arrested, while no peaceful citizens were even questioned by the authorities.
Meanwhile, goaltender Roberto Luongo took to the streets minutes after the game. Reportedly, Luongo made a gallant effort to block a firebomb that was hurled toward a building, but was beaten high to the glove side. A storefront was decimated.
