Poor Cory Sarich(notes). Not only were the Calgary Flames in the middle of an epic meltdown against the Washington Capitals in front of their home fans, he added to the misery by scoring an own goal on Miikka Kiprusoff(notes) in the second period:
Calgary held a 2-1 lead at the end of the first before the Capitals put up a six-spot in the second period and take a 7-2 lead. Washington scored two goals in 12 seconds and two goals in 13 seconds (one being Sarich's) in the second to put things out of hand. Kiprusoff seemed to have pulled himself after Washington's sixth goal. Five minutes later, David Steckel would score shorthanded on a penalty shot to give the Capitals their lucky seventh of the night.
The way things are going, Flames coach Brent Sutter is not far from pulling a Robbie Ftorek and just dumping everything that isn't nailed down behind the bench onto the ice.
