Despite the setback, Malkin owned up to his mistake.
You see my own net goal, it's a little bit down for my confidence. Next game, I need a goal for sure. I hope now I feel so much better because everybody show me this video when I score own net, it's like, I know it's bad luck. Sometimes it happens.


Despite the mishap, Malkin's acceptance shows that even the best players make mistakes.
