Panthers briefly appear to replace broken pane of glass with piece of plywood

- December 10th, 2013

The optics were awful.

Arena staff at the BB&T Center, home of the Florida Panthers, appeared to replace a broken pane of glass with a piece of plywood Tuesday night. Minutes prior, Florida forward Nick Bjustad had cracked the glass with an errant shot.

At first it looked like wood, not a spare pane of glass, was used to clog up the empty space.

And, as Twitter user @CBJProspects suggested, that scenario could play out at only one place — a Florida Panthers home game.

However, things weren’t as bad as they seemed.

It turns out sticky paper played a role in fooling the internet — including us — and those in attendance.

All things considered, this was still a fail.

Glass was exchanged for glass, yes, but one of the most important things about glass is that it’s clear.

Anyway, the Panthers won 3-2 in a shootout. They were playing the Detroit Red Wings in the not-so-highly-anticipated return of Stephen Weiss.

    Bet it was a real “PANE” for the spectators sitting behind it! LOL
