Video: Blackhawks soak in Kane’s painfully slow own-goal

Jan 12, 2014, 9:13 PM EDT

It’s been a charmed year-or-so for Patrick Kane, but that doesn’t mean that every bounce goes his way. Sunday demonstrated that quite dramatically, as he sent a pass that traveled just about the full distance of the ice into his own empty net:

Talk about a slow burn.

As you can see, the own-goal shows that there is a risk in vacating your own net for the extra attacker during a delayed penalty.

Still, the Chicago Blackhawks probably cash in on that situation more often than most NHL teams, so this will probably mainly be something that Kane’s teammates (and the Edmonton Oilers) can have a little chuckle about. Especially since the ‘Hawks won 5-3.

Yup, the ribbing has already begun:

To be fair to Kane, he wasn’t the only one to own-up to some bad luck today:

    Funny the broadcast added a goal for Blackhawks at first, haha.

    2-1 and Kane passes puck into own net, 3-1 Hawks, lol

    I think Kane will get over the mistake when he looks at both Stanley cup rings.

      That’s hilarious. Imagine if they also fired up Chelsea Dagger? Would be the icing on the cake.

    To whom was Kane passing the puck?

      The invisible point man was calling for the puck

    Ok so serious question. If one of the hawks players were to jump off the bench and knock the puck away. What happens? A penalty for too many men? The delayed call gets negated? Penalty shot? What happens?

      Awarded goal

      Why, did Ryane Clowe get traded to the Hawks? :-)

      The Ref would be within his rights to award the goal if he was certain the puck would have gone into the net.

      The other option would not be a negated call, but instead a too many men penalty, leaving them to play 4 v 4 for 2 minutes.

      • shortsxit34 - Jan 13, 2014 at 11:43 AM

        The ref would award a goal in this situation, whether or not the puck would have gone in. It’s an automatic penalty shot, plus no goalie on the ice.

    ^probably thought there was a man at the point, which there probably should have been.
    Dumb*ss scorekeeper put the score at 3-1 lol

    The funny thing is, Kaner scored into his own empty net and they still won the game. Welcome to the Edmonton Oilers. Leave your professional pride at the door.

    I bet his over zealous dad spanked him tonight for doing that.

      What, no cabbie joke?

    Usually awarded goals are given if a penalty is taken with an empty net and the puck and a player is behind the D…. Got one in men’s league last week while at the far blue line…

    KANE probably felt like RICKY…………….

    • slysipops - Jan 13, 2014 at 6:20 PM

      NOW i’m not saying it was his fault… you expect someone to be at the point……but you still feel silly! any of you guys ever played rat hockey and switched some players around in the middle of the game? i have given perfect passes to a guy who WAS on my side but switched….never paid attention to the color of the jersey being wrong….makes you feel like a color-blind cluctz …or worse ! lol!
