Video- Patrik Laine’s Own Goal

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun,

“Everybody saw what happened,” said Laine, who remains among the league leaders with 17 goals and 25 points in 32 games this season. “I don't know. I just tried to get rid of the puck right away. It was just a bad position for me and an unfortunate goal.”

ets captain Blake Wheeler immediately put his arm around Laine when he returned to the bench and gave him a supportive pat on the back.

“He's 18-years-old and he feels terrible. These things happen. I've done it many times, it's just a bad bounce,” said Wheeler. “He's done a hell of a job for us this year. He's obviously a huge part of our team and you hate to see a guy have to feel that way after the game.”

geez, it looked like a ‘goal scorer’s instincts’ just took over and his “reflexes” reacted to shoot before his mind could stop him from putting it his own net

big surprise

tough break, but I like the comments by their captain
he’ll learn and move on for sure

Didn’t Paul Coffey do something similar shortly before the wings ditched him?
