Add to the mix that the Canucks have been flopping all playoffs long, it's not hard to see they assumed he was faking it like the bunch.

Don't get me wrong. Whether someone is hurt or not, I don't like it when the fans boo the player that is down. However, to say "after learning the extent", it's kind of taking the whole scenario out of context.

I'm sure if Thomas grabbed a microphone and quickly said; "Guys, he's really hurt. His back is broken.", the fans would not be booing.
I don't think anything warrants behavior like that. They looked like real idiots already with booing eller and claiming he was faking. You'd think that a fanbase would learn from something like that. But alas, we all can't have opposable thumbs.
