Today In NHL History - Steven Stamkos' Own Goal

On March 29th in 2014, Tampa Bay Lightning sniper Steven Stamkos fired a pass past defenseman Michael Kostka which deflected off the boards and ended up in his own empty net during a delayed penalty, putting the Buffalo Sabres up 3-2 midway through the third period. Stamkos' own goal was credited to Cory Conacher, the Sabres skater whistled for hooking prompting Ben Bishop to abandon his post.

Stamkos would save the day setting up the tying goal on the ensuing powerplay and scoring the overtime winner for a 4-3 win, finishing the evening with two goals and an assist (in addition to his own goal) and completing what he described as an "uncharacteristic hat trick". That's today in NHL history.
