The Arizona Coyotes have been playing their best hockey of the season lately -- but that doesn't mean they won't take a break or two if they get one.

Well, during Thursday night's game vs. the Carolina Hurricanes, they received a big one from the opposing goaltender.

With the Coyotes trailing the Hurricanes 2-0 in the first period, Carolina goalie Cam Ward came out of the net to play a puck, which ended up getting lodged into his skate blade. A few seconds later, an unwitting Ward stuck his skate, as well as the puck, into the net -- and after further review, the Coyotes had their first goal of the game.


Credit to the goal went to Alex Goligoski, the last Coyotes player to touch the puck before it found the net.

Sadly, the goal from Ward -- er, Goligoski -- wasn't enough, as the Coyotes fell to the Hurricanes 6-5.
