Jaroslav Halak’s Goaltending FAIL! (Video)
Like Detroit Red Wings’ television color commentator Mickey Redmond said immediately after this crazy goal, “goaltenders make this move 100 times a night in the NHL.” However, they never seem to do it in quite the same manner as Blues’ goaltender Jaroslav Halak did last night during a game against the Wings.
With his Blues up by a score of 1-0 midway through the first, Halak turned what appeared to be a routine batting of the puck into a rather embarrassing own-goal. It’s not like the Wings needed any help last night putting the puck in the net. They did manage to score six more goals of their own on route to a 7-3 victory, but I’m sure they wont complain about the helping hand from Halak.
