Video: Plekanec Wins Faceoff Into Own Net

Tomas Plekanec is one the NHL's elite faceoff men, but tonight against the Boston Bruins he wishes that he had lost at least one more faceoff. During the first period tonight he beat Patrice Bergeron on a defensive zone draw, but the puck went back towards netminder Carey Price who completely whiffed on the moving the puck to the corner and instead had it end up in his own net.

To their credit both Canadiens involved in this blooper responded beautifully as Price did not allow another goal, stopping 29 Bruins shots and Plekanec scored the game winner in the Bruins net.
