The Boston Bruins are condemning racist slurs about P.K. Subban that hit social media after the Montreal defenseman scored the winning goal in the second overtime of their playoff game Thursday night.

Bruins President Cam Neely issued a statement calling the tweets “racist” and “classless.” He said they came from an “ignorant group of individuals” who do not reflect the organization.

Subban, who is black, scored twice and the Canadiens won 4-3 to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals.

His play has hurt Boston over the years and he’s long been unpopular there. He was booed virtually every time he touched the puck Thursday night.

Subban’s brother, Malcolm, is a goalie with the Bruins’ minor league affiliate in Providence, Rhode Island.
