A Canadiens fan literally threw in the towel as the game ended

Sometimes, things just work out perfectly.

NESN/NHL

Sometimes, things are just too poetic to be put into words. You simply have to witness them. This is one of those times.

With time running out during the Bruins’ 8-1 thumping of the Canadiens tonight in Montreal, someone in the crowd decided enough was enough.

Why yes, that is a white towel slowly fluttering down to the ice. No mas. Poetry in motion.

Mercifully for that Canadiens fan, the game did, in fact, end just a few seconds later.

If only the fan had decided to throw the towel a period or two earlier, he or she could have beaten traffic and gotten a good seat at the bar...
