MUST SEE | Oilers fans fight each other following Game 6 loss to Vegas

The Edmonton Oilers' season came to an end on Sunday night after losing in Game 6 to the Vegas Golden Knights, who now advance to their fourth Western Conference Final in their six-year history.

Oilers fans are beginning to grow tired and frustrated with the team not making it to the Stanley Cup Final, especially when having two of the best players in the world on their roster Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.

Following Game 6, a video surfaced online of Oilers fans fighting each other in the upper bowl of Rogers Place. It's unclear what led to the confrontation prior to the video, but an older man can be seen kicking two other men, who proceeded to fall over a couple of rows of seats. The two then got up and went back at the older man, before he was dragged over a couple of rows, which led to a bit of a pile-up. There was plenty of pushing, grabbing at one another, and shouting before the video cuts off.




That wasn't the only incident as at least three other fights broke out, including two at Ice District and the River Cree Casino, as seen in the three videos below.




It's probably safe to assume that in the majority of these fights, alcohol was involved, but regardless there's no need for this to happen. Every Oilers fan was frustrated after the game, but people are trying to get home to sleep because they have to go to work or school in the morning. Hopefully, the Oilers organization and security/police are able to identify these people and ban them from Rogers Place, even if it's just a small, temporary ban.
