Fan jumps onto ice at Calgary Flames game (Video)
During the second intermission of Wednesday night's Calgary Flames game at the Scotiabank Saddledome against the San Jose Sharks, a fan stripped down to his briefs and jumped over the glass onto the ice. The fan made it all the way to center ice before being apprehended by security.
We've seen fans run onto the field at sporting events many times, but it's extremely rare that we see a hockey fan jump over the glass onto the ice, and we've never seen it during an NHL game. The fan has to know that not only does he have no chance of getting away from security, but he's risking injury trying to walk around the ice without skates. Was it worth it?
Interestingly enough, the game was tied 1-1 at the time of the stunt, but the Flames came out of the locker room and scored three goals in the third period for a 4-1 victory. Coincidence? Yes, probably.
