Hockey players: If you see an open net in front of you and nothing else, just put the puck in there.
I know, I make it sound so easy. But it wasn’t easy for Carl Grundstrom, a forward playing for a Swedish team in the Champions Hockey League. He was about to give his squad a 3-1 lead late in the third period with a point-blank empty-netter on Friday, but the puck somehow hit the post as he skated by.
At least he can say that wasn’t the worst empty net fail in hockey history. That honor might belong to former Dallas Stars forward Patrick Stefan, who whiffed on an empty net and watched as the Edmonton Oilers went the other way to score the game-tying goal with about two seconds left in 2007.
