Video: Flames score on their own empty net

10 Comments

The Calgary Flames’ Cinderella season has taken a dramatic and ugly turn lately. They’ve lost seven straight games — all in regulation — and fell behind 2-0 early in tonight’s contest against Vancouver.

To make matters more demoralizing for them though, the Canucks’ first goal was blooper reel worthy as a botched passing attempt in Vancouver’s zone on a delayed penalty led to the Flames accidentally scoring on their own empty net.

You can see that below:

Per NHL rules, someone on the Vancouver Canucks had to be credited with that goal, so congratulations Yannick Weber on your second of the season.
