Scary Accident With TD Garden Timekeeper During Game 3



Boston Bruins

BOSTON – A scary scene played out in the second period at TD Garden as the off-ice official timekeeper, Joe Foley, appeared to be knocked out cold by the penalty boxes when a giant pane of glass fell on his head. Replays showed the frightening incident, but it was unclear whether it was caused by fans pounding the glass around the penalty boxes shortly after David Pastrnak scored a power play goal to give the Boston Bruins a 3-1 lead in the middle period.

It was unclear what exactly had happened as medical officials rushed a stretcher over by the TD Garden penalty boxes midway through the second, but video replays showed exactly what happened before the off-ice official was ultimately wheeled off the ice to stick taps and well-wishes from the Boston Bruins players.

More on this as it develops, but the Boston Bruins sent along their best wishes to the timekeeper as transported to Mass General Hospital for further treatment.

In all my 62 years of attending & viewing ice hockey games, I never appreciated the wisdom of allowing drunken idiots and first-time corporate ticket holders to incessantly pound on the glass.

That nonsense has caused too many issues through the years; many of those with dangerous results.

I can think of plenty of ways to resolve this — but the easiest (and cheapest) way is to knock this crap off.
