Kukla's Korner Hockey

My team, playing at home, scores two goals early in the 3rd period to go up 2-0. Then the home team gets a 4 minute power play and
does nothing with it
(sorry, they did score a goal), knowing if the do score, the game is basically over.
Then it happens, home team takes a 2 minute penalty and just over a minute later, a player on the home team plays the puck with a broken stick and is caught.
Now down 3 to 5, but still with a 2 goal lead, you think, ok, kill the 5 on 3 and your team is still good.
But the visiting team scores on the 2 man advantage and 12 seconds later, ties the score on a weird goal.
Of course, the nightmare ends when the visiting team wins in the shootout.
It happened tonight, Winnipeg visiting Washington. Nightmare video below…
Evander Kane scores on the 5 on 3, making it 2-1 Washington.
Dustin Byfuglien, from just inside the red line, takes a shot, crazy bounce, game tied 2-2 with 2:03 left in regulation.
