Dan Boyle Own Goal Youtube Video?

I'm looking for the youtube video of Dan Boyle's own goal.

The San Jose Sharks suffered a loss when Dan Boyle scored a goal in his team's own net, instantly ending the game in overtime.

This morning, everyone was feeling really bad for San Jose Sharks defense-man Dan Boyle.

The poor guy inadvertently scored on his own goal in the first minute of overtime to give the Avalanche a 2-1 series lead last night. Boyle was attempting to backhand the puck behind his goal, but instead flung it past an unprepared Evgeni Nabokov.

He scored it for the Avalanche.

He will live in notoriety as "Wrong Way Boyle."
Is there a youtube video of Dan Boyle's own goal?

The video is on youtube already and all over the web too.

With the first two games resulting in a win for each side, the third game between Sharks and Avalanche, in the Western Conference, entered into overtime with the score tied at 0-0.

Dan Boyle tapped the puck backwards, intending for it to go around the boards. Instead, it went directly into the Sharks' own goal, giving San Jose a devastating defeat.

There was some discussion after the game whether the puck was actually tipped by O'Reilly after Boyle's backhand, which sneaked past Nabokov to the short side. Either way, Boyle took the blame.

Dan Boyle initially had no idea how the puck ended up in the net. But back in the locker room, he learned that it hit the shaft of Avalanche rookie Ryan O'Reilly's stick and deflected toward the net instead of behind it.

In the locker room after the game, Marc-Edouard Vlasic had some words of support for Boyle: "Forget about it."

"It's unfortunate. It happens," Vlasic said. "It's not his fault and nobody blames him."

Own-goals are common in soccer but in ice hockey it’s very rare when you get to see an own goal being scored. Dan Boyle was member of the Canadian squad which won the gold at Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010.

This is the video of Dan Boyle's own goal.

Dan Boyle did not deserve this.

Boyle didn't deserve to be the focus of one of those witty ad satires up on YouTube, the ones that are posted there with such amazing speed.
Poor Dan Boyle, I hope people forget about his own goal fast.

Boyle did get lucky in that the play didn't get as much notice as it might have. The game was played in the wrong half of the continent, and the incident happened well after much of the nation had already hit the rack. Plus, it came on the same day as NBA playoff games.

This goal will be forgotten.
