BOSTON (CBS) – Two women were injured when the protective netting behind one of the goals fell at the TD Garden Thursday night.
The pole that holds the netting struck the women after the Bruins-Capitals game at about 9:40 p.m.
Boston Police say the women are in their 20′s and were taken to Mass. General Hospital with minor injuries.
It is unclear what caused the netting to fall.
The netting, which is suspended above the glass at the ends of the rink, was made mandatory by the NHL in 2002 after a fan died when she was hit by a puck in Columbus, Ohio.
