Tampa Bay with one of the worst own goals you will ever see

New, comments

There are bad own goals, and then there is this one from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

This will be the easiest goal Jonathan Toews will ever get credit for in the NHL.

With less than two minutes to play in Thursday's Blackhawks-Lightning game, Tampa Bay was trying to close out a thrilling 5-4 win in a game they were badly outplayed in for much of the night.

And then this happened to force overtime.

That's just ... wow.

Toews gets credit for the goal as he was the last Blackhawks player to touch the puck.

Fortunately for the Lightning, they can now laugh about it thanks to Martin St. Louis scoring a game-winning goal one minute into the overtime period.
