A scary scene played as a time coordinator in the penalty box at TD Garden got hit by a large pane of plexiglass after the Boston Bruins scored a power-play goal during the second period.
Mediaite reports that after David Pastrnak netted a score to extend Boston’s lead to 3-1 over the Carolina Hurricanes in Game 3 of the teams’ first-round playoff series, fans cheered and banged on the glass around the rink in the second period at TD Garden.
The off-ice official timekeeper, Joe Foley, appeared to be knocked out cold, but it isn’t clear what exactly caused the series of events.
Officials and trainers for both teams immediately came to the time coordinator’s aid, and he was wheeled off on a stretcher.
The game was delayed several minutes as medical staff tended to the injured man and the glass was replaced.
