VIDEO: North Dakota Fans Count Michigan's Goals With Middle Fingers

After Michigan's Scooter Vaughan scored an empty-net goal to seal a 2-0 victory over North Dakota in the 2011 Frozen Four, fans of the Fighting Sioux were understandably upset. Despite outshooting Michigan by a margin of 40-20, their team was down 2-0 and their season was basically over. One North Dakota fan in particular was quite upset that Vaughan scored, and he took out his anger by flipping Wolverines players not just one, but two middle fingers. (Click picture to animate.)

Following Ben Winnett's goal for Michigan earlier in the game, a different North Dakota fan flipped off the celebrating Wolverines:

As you can see, the only difference is that this fan used one finger instead of two. Perhaps North Dakota fans just like to count the number of goals that are scored against their team with middle fingers. After all, the angry North Dakota fan in the video was pretty demonstrative about using both of his middle fingers, so I'd just like to think he was representing each goal with a middle finger. Good thing Michigan didn't add another empty-netter before time expired.
