BLOG: Dubnyk has seen crazier goals

The goal scored by Patrick Kane in his own net on Sunday (credited to Boyd Gordon) was a pretty crazy goal, but not the craziest that Devan Dubnyk has seen. He talks about a goal that he let in late in the third period when he was playing for the AHL's Springfield Falcons that cost him a shutout:

"I got scored on from the other end of the ice in Springfield once," said Dubnyk. "We were on a four-on-three power play. They dropped the puck and I was looking at the bench. The pulled the faceoff back and the guy one-timed it right off the face-off. I looked back and by the time I looked back the puck was way up in the air in the stands and I didn't know where it was.

"I was just standing in the middle of my net and it went into the upper half of the net right by my shoulder. I never saw it go in. That was to break my shutout with like seven minutes left in the game.

"It hurt a bit but it didn't cost me. That was probably the weirdest that I've been on the ice for."
