Jiri Hudler Scores on His Own Net in Ottawa

A thing we rarely say or hear when talking about the Dallas Stars: Can't blame the goaltender for this one.

Watch has Jiri Hudler's drop pass splits the defense and slides into the Dallas net with Kari Lehtonen pulled due to a delayed penalty on Ottawa. This one is a real heartbreaker for Dallas, who took their time to set up the offense after the ref's arm went up. They would fall behind 2-0, and eventually lose to the Senators 3-2 at Canadian Tire Center to fall to 21-24-10 on the season.

Note to Dallas: Save the drop passes for when you actually have a goalie in the crease.

The goal was credited to Chris Kelly, his fifth of the season.
