SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

I had been on vacation last week, so I just saw the "own goal" in the Stars game and wanted to comment. Normally I would comment on that day, but since Huddle has been quiet the last few days . . .

I don't remember the details as it has probably been 10 years, but a NHL team down a goal, pull the goalie and move the puck to the far goal line and attempt to pass it back to a player between the circles. The puck skips over his teammate's stick and goes the length of the ice for a goal.

At the time (could still be true) the goal is credited to the last player to have control of the puck for the scoring team. In this case, that player had last controlled the puck almost a minute before he "scored" the goal. :)

I believe that was the Devils, and Martin Brodeur became the only goalie to be credited with a game winning goal. I tried to find video, but I'm at work and my time is probably better spent elsewhere!

Here is Nic Wallin's own goal from a long time ago. It still hurts.

Like father like son, unfortunately.

I almost posted that one, but really didn't want it to be my "return to Sportsfilter" post.
