When Chris Kelly beat Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby to give the Boston Bruins a Game 1 overtime victory on Thursday night, there was much rejoicing. And what better way for fans to celebrate than by banging on the arena glass as the B's mobbed Kelly in the corner of the rink?

Well, as David Krejci will tell you, sometimes fans can be a little too enthusiastic. Also, glass is heavy.

The Bruins center had a pane of glass collapse on him during the Bruins' celebration, leading to several Bruins and fans making their "OH" face while Krejci crawled out from under the glass.

Here's a quick video look at the mishap:

Via NESN: "It appears Krejci was OK after all was said and done, but one glance at the photo of Krejci's mishap tells you all you need to know about how worried Shawn Thornton or Brad Marchand were."

Weird ... usually it's opposing players feeling crushing pane, er, pain in Boston.

No word if the glass received a $2,500 fine from the NHL for smashing into Krejci.

UPDATE: Krejci missed Bruins practice on Friday after this incident.
