Today In NHL History - Corey Perry's Own Goal

On November 21st in 2010, Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry scored an own goal when his offensive zone centering pass traveled the length of the ice into Jonas Hiller's empty net with 16 seconds to play.

Perry's own goal, credited to Tom Gilbert of the Edmonton Oilers, was met with laughs from the last place visitors and some taunting from rookie Taylor Hall. Perry made up for the miscue by clinching the goal scoring title that year with 50 markers, more than twice Hall's 22, and hoisting the Hart Trophy. Edmonton won the game by a score of 4-2.

That's today in NHL history.
