Glass boards shatters during a high school hockey game in Rochester

Glass boards shattered at a high school hockey section playoff game in Rochester Thursday. 

Rochester Century/John Marshall was playing Lakeville South in a section playoff game at the Rochester Recreation Center. Halfway through the second period, the glass boards shattered after Rochester took a 2-0 lead against Lakeville South. 

This is why arenas like Rochester Recreation Center leave the first two rows empty, for safety.
