When it rains it pours.
Or, if you're the Canucks, you assault a paying fan in their arena while your team is getting curb stomped fiercely.
The replay showed the fan did nothing wrong. He mock-clapped and probably mouthed off, the same thing thousands of others do on a nightly basis in any arena. The difference was Rypien - already steamed about the score or another run-in with Staubitz - could hear him and lost it. Badly.
The only thing that could have made it worse would be if it was a Girl Scout in a wheelchair offering him free Thin Mints.
