Pittsburgh Steelers' Kicker Chris Boswell Ejected From Penguins Game

Chris Boswell got kicked out of a playoff game.

Thursday night the Pittsburgh Penguins and Nashville Predators took the ice for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals. PPG Paints Arena, the Penguins home turf, was sold out as fans flocked to see Pittsburgh take down the Predators by a final score of 6-0.

A handful of Pittsburgh Steelers players were also at the game. Among them was kicker Chris Boswell, one of the best in the NFL. Despite the Penguins win, Boswell's experience was less-than-desired after he was ejected from the game.

So why was he ejected from the game? For banging on the glass, according to him.

There's some irony in a kicker getting the boot from a game, especially for excessive celebration.
