So here's something you don't see every day. We've seen the glass break behind the nets or due to a huge hit, but how many times have you seen the glass break inside the penalty box.

That's exactly what happened in Bell Centre Saturday night. With Philadelphia breaking into the Montreal zone, Canadiens defenseman Josh Gorges forced a turnover and looked the send the puck down the ice. However, just as he shot the puck down, Scott Hartnell was being released from the Flyers' penalty box. The door opened and the puck must have hit the glass just right, because it absolutely shattered.

The whistle blew halting play, giving the TV cameras time to survey the damage.

Glass breaking in a game is rare enough, but to break the glass inside the box, a certain set of circumstances has to take place in just the right order. It's just one of the most random occurrences you'll ever see in a hockey game.
