Cory Sarich, Calgary Flames Defenseman, Scores Own Goal Against Capitals (VIDEO)

In the middle of the second period of the Washington Capitals' 7-2 blowout of the Calgary Flames on Saturday, Calgary defender Cory Sarich helped out the wrong team.

With his team up 4-2, Washington's John Erskine dumped the puck near Calgary's goal and Sarich tried to keep it away from Capitals winger Matt Bradley. Unfortunately, Sarich slapped the puck past goalie Miikka Kiprusoff for an own goal, giving Washington a 5-2 lead. Scroll down to watch the video.
