Lightning give up embarrassing game-tying own goal (VIDEO)

Jonathan Toews scored an unassisted game-tying goal for the Chicago Blackhawks late in the third period on Thursday night. But, maybe "scored" isn't the right word, seeing as Toews simply had to touch the puck before the Tampa Bay Lightning put into their own net.

With 1:49 left in regulation and a 5-4 Lightning lead, Toews tried to control the puck but had it taken away on a nice back-check by Marty St. Louis. Tampa Bay's Matt Carle sent the puck back to Radko Gudas with a little too much oomph and it went under his stick blade, off his skate and then past goalie Ben Bishop for the tying goal.

Officially the goal went down as an unassisted score for Toews but in reality, we all know who this one belongs to — Gudas with an assist from Carle.

The good news for the Lightning? They won the game in overtime, 6-5.
