Video: Kovalchuk Helps Cam Ward Get First NHL Goal

New Jersey Devils forward Ilya Kovalchuk was given a 15-year, $100 million contract before last season to put pucks in the back of the net.  Down 3-2 late in Monday night's game against the Carolina Hurricanes the Devils pulled their goalie in hopes of getting a goal.  As it turns out Kovalchuk did score a late goal, but not in the way that the Devils were looking for as he passed the puck into his own net for a goal that was credited to Hurricanes' goaltender Cam Ward.
