Today In NHL History - Bouwmeester's Own Goal

On March 30th in 2012, Calgary Flames blueliner Jay Bouwmeester intercepted a pass from Colorado Avalanche forward Mark Olver and accidentally tucked it past the outstretched right pad of Flames netminder Miikka Kiprusoff for an own goal to open the scoring in a must-win game.
Bouwmeester explained, "It was rolling and I tried to play it across my body and put it in the corner. Obviously, it didn't go in the corner. It's not a very good feeling, that's for sure".

Colorado added three goals to Bouwmeester's own goal, credited to Olver, to beat Calgary by a score of 4-1 extinguishing their playoff hopes.

That's today in NHL history.
