BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — In between the goals of game three of the Boston Bruins and Carolina Hurricanes playoff series, a panel of glass was knocked loose and fell onto one of the National Hockey League's off-ice officials.

After Bruins' right wing David Pastrnak scored on a power play with a wrist shot just around the five-minute mark of the second period, a pane of glass from the TD Garden penalty box fell on top of timeout coordinator Joe Foley, an NHL off-ice official that was stationed inside the box. According to the NHL, Foley was taken off the ice on a stretcher and brought to Massachusetts General Hospital for observation.

Pastrnak told the NHL that he heard Foley is "doing all right, and he's going to be fine," following the incident.

The game was delayed for six minutes while officials tended to Foley.

The Bruins went on to win the game 4 to 2 against the Hurricanes. Game four of the series is set for Sunday, May 8.
