It's been a bad week for glass around the NHL.

A couple nights after Patrick Roy's now-famous outburst in his first game as an NHL head coach led to the toppling of a partition in Colorado, Montreal's Josh Gorges had his own encounter.

OK, so he wasn't filled with the rage of Roy (but then, who is?). This was one of those freak accidents that we'll probably never see again.

Look closely. As Sean Couturier exits the box, Gorges shoots the puck up ice and it went in through the out door. Gorges either has an axe to grind with a spectator sitting in the first few rows, or that's one heckuva freak ocurrence.

What is it with the penalty box glass in Montreal?
