The Calgary Flames fan who tried to streak on to the ice, only to fall over the glass and give himself a concussion, and have to be stretchered off.

I remember this happening with Guy Carbonneau in the late 80s. Is that the one you're thinking of?

The Winnipeg Jets vs Chicago Blackhawks game around 1995 when the Jets player either Nelson Emerson or Stephan Quintal gloved the puck and tossed it wraparound the net and scored......and the refs counted it! They went to video replay and it still didn't matter, they counted the goal...that has to be one of the most *** moments during the 90's....

Cory Cross given chance after chance by team after team, he has been around somehow for about 12 years!

A recent one that I thought was humorous:

Bobby Clarke forgets the name Claud Giroux, his first round draft pick, while he is up at the podium announcing his draftee.

Possibly, I know it was a while back. Somehow I remember the Flyers or Canadiens in the game. Anyhow, it was a one in a billion shot.


and for those who mentioned Wideman....best shootout move of alltime...

Might have been Stephane Richer when he was with the Devils, that was on one of the Rock 'Em Sock Ems... I think it shows him streaking down the right wing, blowing a shot past some goalie and it went right clean through the netting on the blocker side... somehow.

I'm surprised Turgeon/Hunter isn't on the list either, even though the incident is blown way out of proportion. Ballard's tenure with the Leafs should definitely be there. Gil Stein was far, far worse than Bettman.

ArchieisGod, there are few hockey fans on the planet who love the game, and know more about the game, than Michael Farber.
how about this....

did u remember the swing stick incident between eddie shack and larry zeidel in 1968?........larry zeidel mentioned that shack and bruins were making anti semetic comments......

Not necesarily "embarassing" but by far the saddest is that little girl dying at the Columbus game.

As for embarassing...Snow becoming the Isles GM is up there.

Kovalev

Anybody remember Kovalev faking that wrist injury in the playoffs a while back in OT? Souray (his teamate) runs into him at the blue line....the puck's stolen by the forechecking foward (I forget the team/player) and they score ending the game and i believe the series.... classic "derp" moment

Or the time he took a dive, wouldn't get up, the Nordiques get the puck, Sakic scores, but the ref blew the whistle microseconds before the goal, dissallowing it because of Kovalev. Then Kovalev gets up and skates off like nothing ever happened. I've never forgiven Kovalev or Van Hellmond for that one.

He didn't fake the injury. He was slashed on the wrist by Green. Running into his teammate was dumb and selfish IMO, but the injury was real. The ref should have blown the play dead and given Green two minutes for slashing. If the ref had made the correct call, the rest of what happened on the play would be moot. So yes, the performance of the ref was embarrasing.

Yeah, you're right, Kovalev would NEVER fake an injury I saw that video repeatedly and it was no harder than your average slash (mind you this is pre-lockout) At least to me it seemed fairly obvious he was trying to draw a penalty.

Plain and simple he was slashed on the wrist. I've been slashed on the wrist, and trust me, if it hits you in the wrong spot it hurts alot. Take a wooden stick and hit yourself on the wrist with the same force Green did and tell me how you feel? You feel a very sharp pain and your hand goes completely numb.

All this is academic. The ref blew the call.

Chris Chelios on a breakaway this year almost dropped his stick, almost lost the puck, then managed to score anyway.

Even Shanahan was making fun of him on HNIC After Hours.

I'm not sure if this is funny, embarrassing or both. In a game against TO, a drunken (I'm guessing) Brian Spencer then of the Penguins tries to take a face off against Gene Carr, um... also of the Penguins.

This is told in Don Cherry 12 the movie:

Im not sure what the players are but, this one player was on a break away, with an open net, he decides to take a slap shot, he misses the puck and hits the boards, and breaks his nose and his rist, when he is on the strecher, the strecher broke and then he pulled 3 legements in his back.

This is all cause he had to take this huge slapshot!!

Extending this to the WHA for a moment, the first ever regular season game of the Philadelphia Blazers was cancelled (opening night in 1972) when the Zamboni, trying to resurface a shaky ice surface, cracked and broke the ice in front of a packed house. In Gene Hart's book "Score!" he wrote that souvenir pucks were given away as a pre-game promo and when the rep from Blazers' management notified the crowd of the cancellation, he was promptly greeted by flying pucks.
