Seven Vancouver rioters surrender. Inside Rogers Arena on Wednesday night, there was champagne in the Boston Bruins' dressing room and sullen faces for everyone wearing a Vancouver Canucks sweater after the home team's Game 7 loss in the Stanley Cup Final.In downtown Vancouver, it was anarchy.

Seventeen years after another Game 7 riot in the city, what began as a few random fires and incidents of vandalism by spectators became utter chaos, with looters stealing from local stores and police trying to clear the streets. From QMI:

Between 130 and 140 people were sent to hospital, including three people with stab wounds and two suffering trauma, while a number of others were treated in the courtyard of a downtown hospital for the effects of tear gas.

Most people were treated for tear gas and pepper spray effects, lacerations, facial trauma, substance abuse and head injuries, Alyssa Polinsky, spokeswoman for B.C. Ambulance, told QMI Agency Thursday morning.

There were no fatalities, but one person was in critical condition Thursday at St. Paul's Hospital in downtown Vancouver. Polinsky could not confirm if it was the same person witnesses reported seeing jump off a viaduct.
