Two women injured when protective netting falls at TD Garden (PHOTOS)

Two women were injured when the protective netting behind one of the goals fell at the TD Garden Thursday night.

The pole that holds the netting struck the women after the Bruins-Capitals game at about 9:40 p.m., according to CBSBoston.

One woman was taken out of the arena on a stretcher, the other had a neck brace. Their names have not been released.

Boston Police say both bloodied women are in their 20′s and they were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with minor injuries.

It is unclear what caused the netting to fall.

A photographer covering the game for Getty Images was also nearby and, luckily, only his camera got smashed.

The netting, which is suspended above the glass at the ends of the rink, was made mandatory by the NHL in 2002 after a fan died when she was hit by a puck in Columbus, Ohio.
