Oof, this one was bad. Like really bad. On a scale of one to ten of “ones you wish you could have back”, this is probably a 50. Worst of all, it cost the KHL club Salavat Yulaev Ufa the game in OT.
During a line change in 3-on-3 OT, Linus Omark dumped the puck into his own end, for goaltender Juha Metsola to coral. Working away from an incoming player, he passed it into the slot to an oncoming Vyacheslav Osnovin. Thinking he was clear and not bothering to look behind him, Osnovin no-look passed the puck behind him… right onto the tape of an opposing Dynamo Moscow player in Zackrisson Patrik. He took the gift-wrapped pass and put it past Metsola for the game-winning tally. You can bet Osnovin was looking for a place to hide after that.
We here in the West see some bad hockey plays sometimes, but man, that one was just cringe-worthy.
