Quick Shifts NHL News : Bruins Fans , Zack Kassian, Roberto Luongo

Welcome to Quick Shifts, in today’s edition we will take a look at Boston Bruins fans getting injured, the suspension of Zack Kassian, and Roberto Luongo returns to the Florida Panthers.

The Boston Bruins have a very passionate fan base, and they know their hockey as well. But, for a few of them this week will be one they will never forget. After the Bruins game on March 6th two women were hanging out near the glass when the protective net fell on them. That netting has saved countless people from injuries over the years, but not this time. The two women were said to have only suffered minor injuries.

A section of the TD Garden’s protective netting fell onto the crowd at the end of the Bruins game on Thursday, injuring two spectators, Bruins spokesman Matt Chmura said in a statement. The patrons were two women in their 20s who sustained minor injuries from the falling netting, police said. Boston.com

Nothing is going right for the Vancouver Canucks, now they need to deal Zack Kassian being suspended. Kassian will miss the next three games. He boarded Dallas Stars defenseman Brenden Dillon. Kassian is a repeat offender, and will miss out on $32,103.66. Once again the NHL has a player showing complete disregard for another player. Maybe Kassian was just taking out some frustration, as things in Vancouver have been a mess. Whatever he was thinking, I think he needs his head examined.  Check out the NHL.com video explanation.


Finally Roberto Luongo seems happy. The new Panthers goaltender seems right at home in South Florida, and he should. His wife is from that area, and he still owns a home there. Lat night Luongo gave the fans a welcome present. He posted a shut out in his first game back. There is no reason for Luongo to ever be unhappy again. It has been reported that he has wanted to make a return to the Panthers, and now he has the job he wants in the city he wants. If he can;t make it work in Florida he should hang up is pads and go sit on the beach. For more on last nights game check out CBS Sports.
