The Boston Bruins condemned a flurry of racist Twitter comments Thursday posted by the team's fans after the Washington Capitals' Joel Ward scored a series clinching goal to end Boston's season. Several Bruins fans took to the social networking site immediately following the Game 7 overtime loss Wednesday night with an onslaught of racial slurs directed at Ward. "The Bruins are very disappointed by the racist comments that were made following the game last night," the team said in a statement. "These classless, ignorant views are in no way a reflection of anyone associated with the Bruins organization." Ward, who is black, told USA Today Thursday he was not going to allow racist comments to ruin the biggest goal of his career. "It doesn't faze me at all," Ward told the paper. "We won, and we are moving on ... People are going to say what they want to say."
