Toronto hockey fans swarmed Yonge Dundas Square Sunday night to celebrate team Canada’s gold medal victory over the U.S.
A small, manageable crowd first appeared to watch the game, but once Sidney Crosby scored the winning goal, the numbers quickly grew by the thousands.
At one point, there was so many people police were forced to block off the streets at Victoria, Yonge and Dundas, but that didn’t stop the hockey mad crowd from continuing to grow.
While the group was mostly peaceful, there were reports of numerous arrests.
Our CityNews cameras were right in the middle of all the action.
