What’s more embarrassing than a goalie making an own goal? Not much. For Los Angeles Kings’ goalie Jonathan Quick, the game against New York Rangers is going to be a game he will not soon forget. This is definitely something for the National Hockey League, NHL’s blooper video!
Quick’s own goal eventually led New York Rangers to win 3-1 against Kings’. While Ryan McDonagh, didn’t even know he scored, until he saw his teammates cheering.
“I didn’t watch it go down (the ice),” McDonagh said, according to The Associated Press. “I didn’t know what happened at all. Still trying to get the full story. I was just kind of looking over at our bench, and guys started throwing their sticks up in the air.”
Here’s how the LA Kings’ Twitter account responded:
#LAKings now trail 3-1. No comment.— LA Kings (@LAKings) October 8, 2013
It would be fair to say that Quick is one of the NHL’s best goaltenders, which made that own goal even more mind boggling. This was Jonathan Quick’s first home game since his 10-year, $58 million contract extension.
