Craig Smith of the Predators Completely Misses Easy Goal on Empty Net
Nashville Predators forward Craig Smith had a clear-cut breakaway opportunity and a chance at a chippy on the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night. With the Toronto net wide open Smith decided it was a good time to shoot the puck over the net instead of in the net. Why he didn't just tap it in is beyond me. All he had to do was give it a little tappy tap tap taparoo.
Luckily teammate Matt Halischuk would keep the puck on the ice and score an empty-netter to secure the 4-1 win moments later.
