Two women in their 20s were injured when a metal pole holding up the protective netting behind one of the goals at TD Garden fell on them following the Bruins’ 3-0 victory over the Capitals on Thursday night, authorities told The Associated Press.
The women suffered minor injuries and were taken via ambulance to the hospital as a precaution.
The netting, designed to protect fans from flying pucks, fell at about 9:40 p.m.
According to a Boston Herald report, the netting was being raised to the ceiling when it gave way. A metal bar that holds one end of the net fell and appeared to strike one or both women in the head, leaving at least one of them bloodied.
