Every hockey season there are usually a handful of occasions when a screaming puck or big hit will break a pane of glass at an NHL arena. One of those instances occurred Tuesday night in Sunrise, Florida during the Panthers-Red Wings game. Unfortunately, Florida – still figuring out this whole “hockey” thing – was very unprepared for such an occasion.
While swapping out the broken pane of plexiglass with a replacement, the Panthers failed to remove the protective paper covering the new glass. That small little detail wound up making the maintenance team look pretty silly and probably ruined what would have been a very nice view for a group of fans.
Sad, sad Florida.
