Video: Eller gets credit for bizarre Canucks own-goal

Oct 12, 2013, 11:52 PM EDT

Look, we all know it might still be a little awkward with Roberto Luongo still in Vancouver, but that doesn’t mean his defensemen should score goals on him:

Obviously, that’s a joke, as it was just a freak accident for the Canucks.

Montreal Canadiens winger Lars Eller was credited with the goal, his fifth of the season. He’s already had a hot start, so this provides compelling evidence that the bounces are going his way.

Want to see another blind-luck goal? Martin Brodeur had a wildly improbable one last season.

    Not quite the same, but this reminds me of Chris Phillips and Ray Emery.

    Eller is so good that he scores when he’s on the bench.
