    When goals scored against our favorite teams no one likes to see that happen, however there are some goals against that are even worse when they are scored. I'm referring to short handed goals, on a delayed penalty call, in the last minute of a period, when a player on your team fails to clear the puck and there is the rare time when a player scores on his own goalie. So which one of those types of goals against is the worst one?

    Personally I'm going with allowing a goal in the final minute of a period.

    As a Islander fan who watched this way too many times....Last minute to go in the period/game.

    The failing to clear the puck when you should have always bugs me. As an Islanders fan I seen that one way to often in previous years, thankfully for the most part we cut down that happening a good amount

    Shorthanded is the most deflating.

    Your team is expected to be creating all the chances, and has a high probability of scoring themselves.

    Giving up a goal when you have that kind of advantage is tough to take.

    Own goal can be worse, but not if it's just a deflection like the majority of own goals. Only when your player actually shoots it in his own net.

    Voted scoring on your own goalie, as long as it’s not one of the ones that banks of your skate into your net, then short handed is worse.

    When the other things happen, it's part of the game, but scoring on your own goalie, it just feels like an omen that you're meant to lose

    Went the third option and was surprised to see so few votes. Getting scored on when the other team isn't even allowed to touch the puck is extremely embarrassing. You only see it happen like once or twice a season and it can be pretty deflating

    Edit: unless i misinterpreted and the situation is reversed and you get scored on when there's a delayed penalty against you

    That's exactly how I meant when I selected that option, because the team who was getting a penalty was not able to gain possession of the puck for the whistle to be blown.

    I don't get why period's last minute goals against would be worst? Especially the first and second period - who cares?

    You don't think there is a difference being up by 2 goals instead of 1 goal if a team scores in the final minute of a period? Plus why give a team that kind of momentum with a late period goal.

    In this example it was not a last minute goal but during the final game of the 2007 regular season Toronto was playing Montreal and the loser would be eliminated from playoff contention. Montreal was leading 5-3 in the 2nd period, however Toronto scored a goal with 2:14 left to make it 5-4. In the 3rd period Toronto scored two early goals and won the game 6-5. If they never scored that goal late in the 2nd period maybe they end up losing.

    Context is everything.

    Without context it's scoring on your own goalie. Depending upon the context (of the own goal) giving up a shortie might be worse. Also giving up the game-winning goal in the final minute of play might be worse than both.

    Sorry but I think that that's completely backwards. Indeed, momentum is important. What gives momentum is a goal mid-period, or early in the period. That can then snowball the game out of control over the course of that period. However, what halts momentum is the intermission. As such, last minute goals in my opinion have less impact on the momentum than other goals and I think that the opposite from what you're saying is true. It's like getting a free, extended time out after getting scored against to reset the momentum completely.

    I think going up by 2 goals early / mid in the period is much stronger than being up by 2 entering intermission, specifically due to momentum.

    Here is another example I have. During the 2004 regular season Toronto was losing 4-0 in the 2nd period to Ottawa. However all of the sudden the Leafs score 3 goals at the 9:52, 15:55 and 17:38 marks of the 2nd period and are only losing 4-3. You said the intermission can halt momentum and sometimes that could be true. Plus that night Toronto did not tie the game until the 14:57 mark of the 3rd period and won in overtime 5-4. I should also mention that night the Senators were all battling the flu and various players left for the dressing room, so maybe that was a reason for the Leafs comeback. Still maybe Ottawa does not blow the lead despite their players being sick if Toronto only scores 2 goals in the 2nd period instead of 3 goals, since they only scored 1 goal in the 3rd period.

    I went with failing to clear the puck. To me its the only option, outside of scoring on your own net, that indicates an actual mistake by anyone, and therefore is the worst to me.

    I get why letting a goal in late sucks, but just because that happened does not mean your team failed to do something specifically, and could just be that the other team did something really good. Also unless its the end of the 3rd, its not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things.

    Failing to clear the puck, by the use of the word fail, indicates to me that someone had the ability to clear it but screwed up, thus causing a goal. That seems more deflating then simply giving a goal up late for some reason.

    Scoring on your own goalie only happen to the Fortnite master himself,

    what if you scored on your own goalie, in the last minute of the game, on your own powerplay after failing to clear the puck on a delayed penalty.

    It also happened to Kris Russel last season late in the 3rd period during a Toronto vs Edmonton game when the game was tied 4-4.

    I’m gonna go with Option 5. I don’t count weird bounces or deflections off of a defenseman’s stock or skate as own goals, though.

    This was probably, one of the worse and sloppiest game in a long, long while
