Jeff Petry scores on his own team against Detroit Red Wings

Late in the third period the Edmonton Oilers were up 2-1 when the Detroit Red Wings went on the powerplay.  The Red Wings had been struggling to get scoring chances all night, but after Niklas Kronwall fired a shot on net the rebound kicked right out to Oilers defenseman Jeff Petry.  Petry, like many defenseman before him, wanted desperately to clear the puck out of the zone but unfortunately for him he fired it right past Devan Dubnyk.

The goal tied the game and things only got worse for Jeff Petry when they were in overtime.  Pavel Datsyuk turned him inside out late in the overtime and then buried the game winner.  Jeff Petry should be the star of the next Southwest Airlines commercial after his third period and overtime play; wanna get away?
