Jets defenseman Zach Bogosian commits awful turnover for easy Ducks goal

The Winnipeg Jets were knotted at 2-2 with the Anaheim Ducks late in the third period when Jets defenseman Zach Bogosian made a horrible, horrible play with the puck.  There was no pressure on Bogosian and he tried to make a quick pass up ice while the Ducks changed and he whiffed on it.  The puck trickled out front of the net, as Bogosian fell trying to stop it, right to Ducks...
