Watch: Tom Gilbert trips Dustin Tokarski, Canadiens give up OT winner

Friday February 13th, 2015

Montreal Canadiens defenseman Tom Gilbert did a most embarrassing thing against the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night.

In overtime, Gilbert accidentally tripped his goalie, Dustin Tokarski​, while skating with Edmonton's Anton Lander. With Tokarski down for the count, Lander swatted in the game-winning goal to give the Oilers a 4-3 win. 

Tokarski could only look on as Lander easily knocked in a rebound.

The goal was Landers' third of the season. The Oilers improved to 16-31-9 with the win, while the Canadiens fell to 35-15-4.
