Glass-shattering check at Senators game sends two children to hospital

The two children, a brother and sister, and their parents were showered with broken glass as the pane exploded into pieces when the Ottawa defenceman drove Weiss into the boards directly beside the right faceoff circle in the Senators' zone 3:12 into the first period.

A team official confirmed that the two children, who were sitting in front row seats, had been sent to a hospital by ambulance along with their parents.

Play was delayed for eight minutes to clean up and replace the broken pane. Weiss did not return to the game until the beginning of the second period.
