Carolina Hurricanes score game-winning goal on themselves

Ron Hainsey chose a bad time to kick the puck in his own net.

With his team tied with the Carolina Hurricanes in the third period at one goal apiece on Thursday, Tampa Bay Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov had the puck on his stick and a game-defining decision to make.

Should he pass the puck to his teammate or take the shot himself?

But then another option appeared in the form of Ron Hainsey.

Whoops. Just like that, the Carolina Hurricanes lost the lead and the game thanks to an own goal. That about sums up their season so far.
