Canucks draw penalty, pull goalie and promptly score on their own empty net

Poor Loui.

NHL: Preseason-Calgary Flames at Vancouver Canucks Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

You can cross a new item off your “rare hockey plays” bucket list.

The screaming you heard from Canucks fans on Twitter was because of a major, yet amazing, gaffe by winger Loui Eriksson in the first period on Saturday.

The Flames had just taken a penalty; winger Troy Brouwer was whistled after tangling with a Canucks player nine minutes into the game. But Vancouver retained possession, and pulled their goalie to get a man advantage until the Flames touched the puck again.


Amazing. I had the Canucks last in my watchability rankings this season. I ... might need to bump them up if this continues.
