As if the first 61:18 between the Bruins and Capitals weren’t nail-biting enough last night during Boston’s 1-0 overtime win in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, there were a few more tense moments during the celebration that followed Chris Kelly’s game-winner.
David Krejci is reportedly OK after a pane of glass from the Garden popped out and fell on top of the Bruins forward, crumpling him to the ice. Watching the video, it’s a wonder he was able to get to his feet so quickly. According to Denver‘s Pepsi Center web site, each pane of glass can weigh between 50 and 250 pounds a piece.
Update: Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli told reporters today that Krejci is day-to-day, and his status for tomorrow’s Game 2 is uncertain.
