WATCH: Anaheim Ducks lose by scoring on own goal
What an unfortunate ending for the Anaheim Ducks last night against New Jersey! About two minutes into the overtime period between the Ducks and Devils, Anaheim defenseman Ben Lovejoy attempted to clear the puck to the right boards after a save by goaltender Jonas Hiller. Unfortunately for Lovejoy, the puck bounced off the leg of teammate Corey Perry and back into their own net.
With the loss, the Ducks dropped their first home game following a four-game road trip along the east coast in which they lost all four games to Florida, Tampa Bay, Carolina, and Pittsburgh. Despite five straight losses now, the Ducks still hold the lead on top of the ultra-competitive Pacific Division.
