Fan throws Oilers jersey on ice at Flames game, hilarity ensues on Twitter

- March 25th, 2014

The Battle of Alberta just got a new twist.

A fan attending the Calgary Flames game at the Saddledome Monday night was likely poking fun at their provincial rivals in the Alberta capital after an Edmonton Oilers jersey was thrown onto the ice.

While the Flames were taking on the San Jose Sharks, a fan threw the jersey during the third period of what would eventually end in a 2-1 shootout victory for Calgary.

This comes on the heels of a second incident this season on Saturday during the Flames’ 8-1 drubbing of the Oilers in Edmonton, during which goaltender Ben Scrivens helped clean up the discarded sweater by hurling it back into the seats with his goal stick during a commercial timeout.

The first incident occurred on Dec. 21 at the end of a 6-0 Oilers drubbing at the hands of the vaunted St. Louis Blues.

The fan at the Flames game was supposedly seeking some cheap laughs as the end of the regular season approaches, but with both the Flames and Oilers missing the playoffs the joke is really on both teams.

Hilarity ensued on social media as Twitter lit up with jokes, trash talk and general fan support following the third incident involving an Oilers jersey.
