Watch: Filip Forsberg actually breaks crossbar with absolute rocket of a shot

Last night during the Predators and Avalanche game we saw something that not even Zdeno Chara or Shea Weber have done. At least in the age of social media it hasn't been done. We've seen broken pucks and broken glass, but never a broken crossbar.

Courtesy of a rocket of a shot from Filip Forsberg, a piece of the crossbar actually broke off, forcing a bit of a delay as some makeshift repairs were made. But was it really that hard of a shot - or just a perfectly placed shot?

According to the below diagram, the post appears to have broken where one of the crossbar cameras is inserted for goal reviews. This makes sense given how the crossbar is weakened in these areas due to the cameras being inserted to help with reviews.




The best part of the whole incident is that the ice crew at the Avs' home barn used duct tape to fix it instead of bringing out another net. While teams have extra nets available, they are often there for practices and game day skates and do not have the cameras installed. Should a goal need to be reviewed, not having the cameras in the crossbars would inhibit the ability for a proper review and favour one team.
