Boston Bruins president Cam Neely issued a statement Friday denouncing several racist tweets directed toward P.K. Subban after the defenseman scored in the second overtime to lift the Montreal Canadiens to a 4-3 victory Thursday night.

“The racist, classless views expressed by an ignorant group of individuals following Thursday’s game via digital media are in no way a reflection of anyone associated with the Bruins organization.”

Boston Mayor was also disgusted by the comments directed at Subban.

“This is a disgrace. These racist comments are not reflective of Boston, and are not reflective of Bruins fans,” Walsh said. “I’ve said before that the best hockey in the world happens when the Bruins and Canadiens play each other, and there is no room for this kind of ignorance here. Yesterday Mayor Coderre and I made a friendly wager on the series, and we closed the conversation by wishing each other the best. I would hope that fans on both sides would follow this example.”

Sabban scored his second goal of the game at 4:17 of the second overtime.

      I agree and Boston has possible the worst reputation of any US city in this regard. I’ve only really visited once and within a few hours I saw the most despicable behavior and I will never forget it. In the hotel lobby where I was staying,two gentlemen were very loudly shouting all kinds of racial slurs and bashing Blacks ad Hispanics in the open. No one said anything to them. It was incredible, I’ve never seen anything like it and I have lived in the south the past 10 years. I don’t doubt for a second what has been said about people in Boston.
