Islanders fans litter the ice with garbage following Game 6 victory

For the life of me I'll never understand this... Long Island confetti?


The New York Islanders have officially forced a Game 7 in their best of seven, semi final series against the Tampa Bay Lightning after an overtime Game 6 thriller at the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island.

Islanders forward Anthony Beauvillier took advantage of a turnover deep in the Lightning's zone and made no mistake in firing the puck past Lightning netminder Andrei Vasilevsky. It was a picture perfect snipe too, a real highlight reel candidate. It's really too bad that the Islanders faithful had to ruin the moment by showering the players with beer cans, popcorn bags and other types of literal trash.

Watch here how quickly the players get off the ice following Beauvillier's game winner to avoid being pelted with a can of beer:

That's... I... I just don't get it.

Can someone explain to me why fans would do this? Your team just won. This is YOUR team! What are you doing!?
