Jack Hughes falls down on breakaway vs. Flyers

New Jersey Devils center Jack Hughes suffered an embarrassing mishap at the worst possible moment during Tuesday night's game in Philadelphia. 

It happened in the second period with the Devils holding a 3-1 lead. Hughes found himself behind the Flyers defense as the Devils stopped the Flyers on the defensive end and passed the puck right to him. Hughes had nobody between himself and goaltender Carter Hart, but inexplicably lost his footing and fell down, wasting the breakaway opportunity.
   

Hughes probably wishes he could have a do-over on that one.  Fortunately, his teammates had his back as the Devils held on for a 4-3 win.
