UPDATE: The Bruins released the following statement:
Last night The Washington Capitals ended the Bruin’s season by defeating them in an exciting overtime game. Joel Ward scored the goal for the Capitals with a nice backhanded lift over Tim Thomas as Thomas was getting run over by Mike Knuble.
It was a good game, and a great series, that had 5 games go to overtime. Then some racist a$$holes fired up their twitter machines. The results were pretty disgusting. I have blacked out parts of the offending word, but left in the “author’s” twitter handle.

There is something wrong with people.
