I think what he means is that it was a 2-game series. They had won the first game, they were certain to lose the second, so the series was going to be decided by an overtime period. Since it didn't matter if they lost 1-0 or 2-0, they scored in their own net so that they would not start the overtime period that would decide the series one man down. Am I right?

Anyway, I don't know if I would call doing that unsportsmanlike, but it's not brilliant either. I would not have congratulated that player. It leads to a situation where if a team is down and certain to lose the game they can just do whatever they want at the end of the game and score in their own net until the overtime period starts.
