Predators vs. Panthers Goes to Early Intermission After Fan Is Struck by Puck
Alan Diaz/Associated Press

Saturday's game between the Nashville Predators and Florida Panthers went to an early intermission after an errant puck hit a fan toward the end of the second period at the BB&T Center.

NHL Public Relations shared a statement, noting the teams would play the final 32.1 seconds of the period when they returned to the ice for the third period:

Florida trailed 3-0 when the incident took place, and the Predators went on to win 5-0.

It's an unfortunate incident, but things like this do happen at sporting events, such as a baseball flying into a crowd.

NHL arenas feature tall Plexiglas that surrounds the rink, but a puck can clear it. There is no word on the status of the fan, but hopefully the Panthers will do all they can to help out following the accident.
