2 fans injured after pole falls behind goal following Bruins game

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 [1], 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.
