VIDEO: Jaroslav Halak Commits Stroke Penalty, Scores On His Own Goal

Let's set the scene. You're out on the links with your buddies this past Saturday, probably a little drunk. You're actually, somehow, surprisingly just off the green after six strokes and 20 minutes digging your ball out of a bush, when you approach, take your swing and knock it off line to the left because your club head knocked the ball a second time on the follow-through. That's a penalty, and let's be real here: you're gonna reach the limit on this hole.

It happens to the best of us, and the "best of us" certainly includes one Jaroslav Halak, goaltender of the St. Louis Blues. This wasn't just some Saturday afternoon get-away-from-the-wife trip, though. Here's Halak at work against one of his team's biggest rivals.

Halak and the Blues finished pretty poorly on the hole, too, eventually losing to the Wings by a 7-3 final.
