Shocker: Philly fans throw full beer cans on the ice during playoff game

Just like they did to Vikings fans before the NFC title game.

Philadelphia fans were at it again on Sunday, throwing a tantrum that included chucking full beer cans and garbage onto the ice in the final moments of Pittsburgh's Game 6 win over the Flyers. 

"Ladies and gentlemen, please do not throw any items on the ice.," said Philadelphia's in-arena announcer as the ice was being littered with full beer cans and garbage. 

"Just watch it," said NBC analyst Pierre McGuire, "there's heavy artillery flying all over down there, beer cans, everything." 

It's the same thing Philly fans did to Vikings fans before the NFC Championship Game in January.

The vandalism continued after the game's final horn as players were meeting at center ice for a traditional handshake. 

"People are still throwing beer cans at the Penguins. You gotta look out down there, this is nuts," McGuire said.  

Minnesota native Jake Guentzel, who scored four goals in the game for the Penguins, was seen on camera looking disgusted

Fortunately, their team got eliminated so their insane hockey fans can't do any more damage. Now the world only has to worry about Philadelphia 76ers fans, who have yet to earn a reputation as nasty.
