Last night, an incredibly strange sequence led to the Tampa Bay Lightning to allow one of the most embarrassing and strange goals against in recent NHL history. In their matchup against the Montreal Canadiens, the strange event happened at the end of the second period to give the Habs a two-goal lead.

After a shot against Canadiens goalie Sam Montembault, the Tampa Bay players and even arena staff thought the play was dead. Music began playing like it does during stoppages in play, but the Habs quickly realized the play had not been blown dead. Seeing that the play was alive and Tampa goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy was out of his net, Habs defender Johnathan Kovacevic shot the puck all the way down the ice for a good goal. No Tampa players even figured out what happened until well after the puck was in the net.
The entire sequence makes for one of the more strange and embarrassing goals against in NHL history. Usually lauded for their championship habits and unwavering commitment to their game, it's also a bad look on a Tampa Bay Lightning team that's now struggling more than they have in years.
In the end however, the Lightning were able to mount the comeback and beat the Canadiens by a score of 4-3. However, this goal will be the event of the game, and it come just in time to qualify for the worst misplays of 2023.
