Perhaps it can be said that what goes around comes around for Toronto Maple Leafs forward P.A. Parenteau.

Early in the second period against the Calgary Flames on Monday, Parenteau missed out on a potential breakaway chance when he appeared to lose an edge just after stepping out of the penalty box. 

The veteran winger may have got a little ahead of himself as the only thing in the way of a clear path to the net was his own skate blade.

Somewhat fittingly, Parenteau had been serving a two-minute minor for tripping. 

However, it should be noted that Parenteau had put Toronto on the board first with his 18th goal of the season in the opening frame. 

The Leafs went on to defeat the Flames 5-2 at the Air Canada Centre.
