The Florida Panthers are the butt of so many jokes in hockey but they don't help themselves out very much.

On Tuesday night at home against the Red Wings, Panthers center Nick Bjugstad fired a shot wide that struck the glass behind the net and cracked it. It was time to replace the glass except for one problem: they couldn't install the glass correctly.

This was the result:

I think that would qualify as an obstructed view seat. Hoo.

Don't worry though, it's not actually cardboard or wood.

So the glass itself is kosher but that's about it. Amazingly, it looked like fans actually remained in their seats behind the new pane.

By the way, the game went to overtime tied at 2-2 and before the extra frame began, the crew came back out onto the ice and fixed the pane. But still, it happened for nearly half a period.
