Aleksander Barkov whiffs on penalty shot as puck skips on ice (Video)

Aleksander Barkov whiffs on penalty shot vs Red Wings

Florida Panthers captain Aleksander Barkov can blame the ice at the BB&T Center for making him look bad during the third period of Saturday night's NHL game against Detroit.

Barkov had a penalty shot against Red Wings goaltender Michael Hutchinson at the 1:49 mark of the third with the Panthers trailing 3-2. However, as Barkov took his final approach, the puck skipped on the ice and got away from him, causing him to whiff on the shot.

That's just terrible luck. Between that play and getting crushed by Alex Ovechkin the night before, Barkov has had a tough couple of days.

Fortunately, Barkov was able to make up for it later in the period by getting an assist on the tying goal, his second assist of the game. However, the Red Wings won in overtime 4-3.
