There isn’t much that’s more embarrassing in hockey than accidentally shooting on your own goal.
Carolina defenseman Jamie McBain couldn’t have felt particularly good after Carolina’s 4-1 loss to Winnipeg on Tuesday.
He helped bury the Hurricanes when he whiffed on a shot and then sent the puck sailing backwards by bringing his stick back to the ice. Hurricanes goaltender Justin Peters, playing in his 34th NHL game, couldn’t handle the surprise shot.

Carolina has now lost six straight games and is six points behind the Southeast Division-leading Winnipeg Jets.
