The Los Angeles Kings were at home Monday night, when they played the New York Rangers. What happened during the game was something nobody watching would have expected: Jonathon Quick score a goal!
Not so fast Kings fans, the goal he scored happened to be on his own net. Quick was trying to recover a puck during a penalty kill by the Rangers when he lost his stick and ultimately had his pads in a position to bounce the puck in the net.

Brian Boyle won the puck in the defensive zone face off and then passed to Ryan McDonagh. McDonagh then proceeded to clear the puck by launching it in the other direction, 163 feet to be exact. Quick was embarrassed to say the least, and I’m sure fans everywhere were cringing as that puck took to the crease and eventually the back of the net. This goal put New York up 2-1 in the game.
The Rangers would ultimately win the game 3-1, and move to 1-1-0 on the season. The Kings fell under .500, as they are now 1-2-0.
