Boston Bruins Fans Turn To Porn After Chicago Blackhawks Claim The Stanley Cup


Sports fans tend to be pretty passionate folks, especially when their team is in a make-or-break game with the Stanley Cup on the line.

So it makes sense that Boston fans, having been deflated Monday after the Bruins lost to the Blackhawks, sought an emotional release through decidedly different means: While rowdy Chicagoans were out filling the streets, it seems Boston fans were at home, with the doors locked and the blinds closed, looking at porn.

That tidbit comes courtesy of Pornhub, an adult website, that released a screenshot of its Internet traffic from both Boston and Chicago in the hours leading up to 11:00 p.m. ET on Monday night.

From 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., traffic from both cities appears to have been below average. Right at 11:00 p.m., however, just after Chicago came from behind for a last-second win, traffic in Boston spiked to 21 percent higher than average.

CBS Sports has a press release from PornHub:

Last night marked the end of the NHL Championships, and much like the NBA Finals did, the battle for the Cup managed to take users away from their beloved porn once more. Until, of course the end of the game marking the Bruins' loss, which saw all of Boston turning to Pornhub to take out some of that pent up aggression.

That's right -- the statisticians at carefully analyzed each hour of the game to track traffic changes in Chicago, Boston, and across the US by the hour; comparing each location relative to the rest of the country.

Regarding the press release, Inquisitr joked, "wait, PornHub has statisticians?"
