Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Jamie McBain helped out the wrong team on Tuesday night when he accidentally slipped a puck past his own goalie in a game against the Winnipeg Jets.

McBain had tried to clear a pass by Winnipeg sniper Evanader Kane during the third period. But the 25-year-old defenseman whiffed on his shot and then accidentally backhanded the puck past Carolina goalie Justin Peters. Kane was credited with the score.

Winnipeg went on to win 4-1.

McBain hasn't tallied a goal for his team since January 28th against the Boston Bruins.

This is the second time in two games that a Hurricane has put a puck in the wrong end. On, Saturday Jordan Staal sent an errant pass into an empty net during a matchup against the New Jersey Devils.
