“We have heard that everything is going well and he will be fine,” said Bruins star David Pastrnak.

The glass dropped on Foley, who is a commercial coordinator, separated the Bruins’ penalty area from the crowd. The game is resumed with a police officer in the stands to maintain a barrier.

According to ESPNfans were banging on the glass causing it to come off and fall on Foley.
