On this week’s episode of the Dark Poutine podcast, we hear about the Vancouver Stanley Cup riots of 1994 and 2011.

The two that the Dark Poutine tackles in this episode are a couple of the most recent and most memorable. The NHL’s Vancouver Canucks made the Stanley Cup finals twice in a span of 17 years. After both series, coming on the heels of Game 7 losses, bad apples tore up the fair city.
