TD Garden went from jubilation to silence very quickly in Friday’s Game 3 between the Bruins and the Hurricanes.

With 5:07 left in the second period, David Pastrnak scored a power play goal to give the Bruins a 3-1 lead. As Boston fans celebrated, a section of glass fell and landed on an off-ice official sitting in the Bruins penalty area.

The off-ice official immediately received medical attention, interrupting the game for almost 10 minutes. The official was eventually stretched and wore a neck brace. Pastrnak slapped the official as he was stretched.

As for the goal, it was Pastrnak’s first so far in the playoffs. It was also the Bruins’ second power-play goal of the series.
