Canadiens Defenseman Francis Bouillon Scores on Own Net Against Panthers (Video)

Montreal’s Francis Bouillon potted his first two goals of the season Sunday night. Unfortunately for the Habs, one of them found the back of the wrong net.

With the Canadiens leading Florida 4-0 midway through the third period, Bouillon controlled a Tomas Kopecky slapshot in front of his own net and tried to send the puck off the back boards. But instead of clearing the puck harmlessly around the goal, Bouillon shot it right past Montreal goalie Peter Budaj and into his own net, giving the Panthers crowd something to cheer about for the first time all night.

The Habs held on to win 5-2, but we doubt Bouillon’s teammates will let him hear the end of this anytime soon.

Check out the blunder in the video below, with a hat tip to Puck Daddy.
