Violence on 'Blue Mile' mars Oilers celebration
The post-game stabbing of two men marred celebration of an Edmonton Oilers playoff victory.
Both were stabbed around 11:30 p.m. MDT Friday at a Whyte Avenue bar.
The avenue has become known as the Blue Mile during hockey playoffs, as thousands of young fans of the NHL club have gathered there after wins.
On Friday night, the Oilers defeated the San Jose Sharks 6-3 to tie the series at two wins each.
The crowds -- estimated at one point to be 15,000 -- that surged into the area prevented ambulances from getting to the bar where the stabbings occurred.
Police had to remove the victims in police cruisers and then transfer them to waiting ambulances.
Both victims are said to be recovering.
