Chicago Blackhawks’ Forward Patrick Kane Scores Empty-Net Own Goal Against Edmonton Oilers

Delayed penalties at any level of ice hockey often result in the seemingly positive move of one side pulling their goalie to make use of the extra man.

What followed was possibly the longest couple of seconds in his career, as he hopelessly watched it trickle into the empty net:

Fortunately for Kane, the Blackhawks scored twice more in that period and went on to win the game comfortably 5-3 and now, like he did with the puck, he can put this game behind him.
