  • Canucks win first playoff game against Predators

Thousands of people packed the streets around Rogers Arena last night in Game 1 at the start of the Stanley Cup series as the Canucks beat the Predators 4-2. 

Vancouver Police are congratulating the fans for celebrating responsibility and making it a positive experience for those who gathered. 

Police say the atmosphere was safe and festive, although officers did respond to several incidents of people who had too much alcohol and one person was arrested for public intoxication. 

A Canucks loss at home to Boston in the Stanley Cup final in 2011 prompted some fans to riot, smash windows and loot stores, resulting in hundreds of criminal charges.
