The original AP report seemed to give tonight’s glass breaking credit to Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux, but after watching this video, it looks more like Kimmo Timonen was the glass shattering culprit.
Regardless of whomever broke the glass, it’s always fun to look at something like that (at least when it doesn’t appear that any fans were hurt).
Ultimately, the slightly odd decision to play the final two minutes of the first period after a first intermission before playing the second really didn’t make much of a difference. The Flyers absolutely trampled them by a score of 6-1 anyway. (Read more about the first 11 games from Wednesday’s slate here.)
You can see the broken pane of glass in this post’s main image (a screen shot from the CSN telecast) but why not watch the full video itself?
