Bobby Ryan Shatters The Glass And Avoids Severe Damage
Total Pro Sports – The Anaheim Ducks young phenom Bobby Ryan was all over the highlight reel last night. Not only did he have score two goals, but he also was involved in a hit that shattered the glass between the benches and delayed the game for several minutes.
Midway through the second period, after Ryan scored his first goal of the night to make it a 1-0 hockey game, the Ducks forward was flying up the boards along the benches when Shark forward Milan Michalek had lined him up for a hit. Ryan jumped out of the way just in the nick of time, but the hit still caught enough of the glass to shatter it. Play was delayed for a lengthy period as arena attendants did not have the proper size glass and therefore had to cut out a proper sized Plexiglas as a replacement.
Not even that could slow down Bobby Ryan and the Ducks down though as they won the game 4-0 and took a 3-1 strangle hold on their best-of-seven series with the San Jose Sharks. San Jose will go back home for game 5 Saturday night and will need to win their first game there if they expect to make this series interesting.
Here’s a clip of the glass incident.
