6/16/2011 5:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Things got downright violent in Vancouver last night -- when angry fans RIOTED IN THE STREETS after the Vancouver Canucks lost the Stanley Cup to the Boston Bruins in a 4-0 asskicking.

Cars were flipped and burned, windows smashed and stores were looted by drunk/angry hockey fans as police armed with pepper spray, tear gas and flash-bang grenades rushed to break it up.

Local law enforcement tells TMZ ... the situation is finally under control.

anytime you get over 100,000 people gathering and drinking to watch a game in a 2 block radias, in a area were all the bars are, 5000 of them will find a way to act like idiots.As a life long Canucks fan it's sad to see these people represent the over 2 million Vancouverites tha*****ched the game and acted like adults.unfortunatly win or lose this was going to happen as people were showing up just to riot with signs "riot 2011" made before the game started.

Has nothing to do with the loss. It would have happened win or lose. Too many people that can't handle their beer, get into a massive crowd and act like morons. I hope they are caught, prosecuted, and made to clean up the big ass mess they made.

Why is it that when Canadians show any sort of patriotism the americans have to lash out at us, yet they can lynch their minority citizens, start wars over oil, hold back their gays from being free, discard the elderly, keep the homeless on the streets, and idolize people like the kardashians and the idiot Jersey Shore crew? I'm proud of my country, we like our Hockey and if a little riot is what's going to make Americans think they're better, then let them, just goes to show the intelligence of our southern dbags. If we're america's "hat", then does that make them our diarrhea?

I was downtown when all of this craziness was going down and can honestly say that 90% of the fans were peaceful. The people that started all the madness went downtown with the plan of starting trouble. They used the Stanley Cup finals as an excuse to make trouble. Vancouver hosted the Olympics and that was a peaceful celebration. I hope that this does not cause the world to see our beautiful city as violent because a select few losers.
