There are certain teams in the NHL that seem to attract strange occurrences. The Toronto Maple Leafs are one of those teams.

Five seconds into the third period of their game against the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday, the Leafs allowed a rather embarrassing goal while on a power play.

In the midst of a line change, Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson stood on his team’s blue line and launched the puck toward the Leafs’ zone in a clearing attempt. The puck ended up in the back of Toronto’s net, good for a goal from 150 feet out.

Toronto goaltender Jonathan Bernier looked flabbergasted, naturally. It was Ekman-Larsson's 13th goal of the season.

The Coyotes went on to win the game 3-1.
