Boyle's Own Goal, Steve Smith still lives

Remember when the Oilers Steve Smith put the puck in his own net back in the 86 playoffs vs the Flames? Well, Sharks Dan Boyle just did the same thing at 51 seconds of OT. He was trying to do a backhand pass around the net and instead, it slipped between the post and Nabokov into the net and the Avs beat the Sharks, 1-0. This was after the Sharks had outshot the Avs by a huge margin, something like 55-16 in regulation and the Sharks threw everything at Craig Anderson in the 2nd and 3rd periods but, the sideboards and team benches and could not get it past him. Then they lose in a fluke.
This was worse than Steve Smith. Smith's goal went off of Fuhr. Boyle shot it straight into his own net.

Still, Boyle's play was unlike the other ones. This was the funniest of 'em all, especially when you consider how Colorado didn't deserve to win the game one bit.
This would be the equivalent having a boxing match where one guy knocks the other guy down 20 times, but gets disqualified for hitting the other guy when he's down and out.

All I can tell you as that he looks like he is about to cry and it should be on YT soon.

"Bill Buckner thinks Dan Boyle is a failure."

Damn, I was gonna post that! LOL
Man the Sharks board on HF has some pretty good reactions. I think this one is my favorite:

What makes it worse is the context, OT and the Sharks outshooting the Avs 51-16 or something. Could be a rallying cry though, "let's win the series for Boyle".
Do the Avs get credit for a shot on goal on the winning tally? I don't think they do. So yeah, it was 16 shots, and Nabokov technically shut them out.

Boyle has just given new meaning to the term "two-way player".
