Stanley Cup Playoff crowds are well-known for being more raucous than the NHL’s regular-season audiences. The TD Garden crowd brought that idea to life throughout Game 3 of the Boston Bruins’ first-round playoff series versus the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday, resulting in a frightening injury. 

After Bruins ideal winger  David Pastrnak scored an objective late in the 2nd duration to offer Boston a 3-1 lead over Carolina, the fans seated near the charge box consistently banged the glass with sufficient force to ultimately knock a panel loose. The panel struck timeout organizer Joe Foley in the head, triggering him to collapse. 

Emergency workers instantly hurried to Foley, positioned a neck brace on him and took him away through stretcher – a procedure that stopped briefly the video game for approximately 5 minutes. Both the Bruins and Hurricanes used their assistance on Twitter. 

Here’s how the regrettable scene decreased: 

According to the Boston Globe, Foley went to a regional health center for preventive factors and was considered OK. 

Security supposedly accompanied a fan from the location after the occurrence, however it’s uncertain whether the termination was straight connected to Foley’s injury. The NHL prevents fans from banging on the glass due to the fact that it might trigger harmful scenarios like the one Foley discovered himself in Friday. 

The Bruins ultimately beat the Hurricanes 4-2 to track 2-1 in the series. Game 4 is set for Sunday at 12:30 p.m. ET on ESPN and you can stream the video game on fuboTV (shot for complimentary).
