I returned to the Georgia Street live site and soon found an angry dejected crowd of mostly young fans crowding the biggest screen at the front of the area.
After Marchand's empty-net goal young drunks began talking about the violence that was about to break out.
As the last minute dwindled down, pop bottles and bottle rockets rained down on the screen and people cheered when one hit the screen.
Almost five minutes after the game ended a small fire broke out in front of the Canada Post headquarters on Georgia Street.
Soon after people flipped a silver Nissan in front of the building.
That would be the first car of many to be set alight that night.
