It's a very real possibility: your team is about to get a power play, your coach pulls the goalie, and there's an empty net waiting at the other side of the ice. You clear the puck, it bounces off of the boards, and then it slides... oh no... is it... yes. It slides right into your own empty net.
It's always a possibility, but doesn't happen often, most of the time because you don't clear the puck out of the opposing team's zone when you're about to get a power play. Shoot it at their goalie and get the whistle. Patrick Kane will remember this from here on out.no comments
