The Toronto Maple Leafs held a 1-0 lead on the Arizona Coyotes and were on a power play as the third period began. Things were looking good.

Five seconds later, Jonathan Bernier channeled Vesa Toskala and oh, no:

Oliver Ekman-Larsson will never get a luckier goal in his career, especially shorthanded. He also entered the NHL record books in the process. The goal was the fastest shorthanded tally to start a period ever at five seconds.

That’s a rough one for Bernier. That puck dipped just as he thought he was about to catch it. And now he joins Vesa Toskala with his own Maple Leaf memory to forget.

The goal was the start of a bad third period for the Leafs. Martin Hanzal would score three minutes later and the Coyotes would add on an empty-netter another one for a 3-1 victory.
