Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos accidentally scores goal in own net

Publish date:

Saturday evening was an eventful one for Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos.

The veteran's roller coaster night first began with embarrassment after he sent a wayward pass past a teammate, which then, shockingly, ricocheted off the boards and slid right into Buffalo's own empty net, thus giving the Sabres a one-goal lead.

Fortunately for Tampa, they were able to tie the game before the end of regulation, which thankfully allowed Stamkos to be in a position to score the game winner in overtime.
