Video: McQuaid’s embarrassing fall leads to Tampa Bay’s go-ahead goal


Embarrassing moments happen to everyone and hockey players are no exception.

Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid had one of those moments in the first period of Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay.

With the game tied at one, McQuaid skated along the blue line with the puck before falling backwards.

The mistake proved costly.

Alex Killorn and Ryan Callahan entered the Bruins zone on a two-on-none breakaway and they beat Tuukka Rask to give the Bolts a 2-1 lead in the game.
