Nashville Predators forward Craig Smith misses a wide-open opportunity to score an empty net goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs.  Not only does he miss, Smith totally air mails his shot.

Whoops!  Adam Smith took missing an empty net goal to a new level.  Normally, you see hockey players miss an empty net because they are at a weird angle or at the opposite end of the ice.  Smith missed at point-blank range.  Ouch.

By the way, I've gotta give a quick shoutout to the guy in charge of playing the music at Nashville Preds' games.  After Smith misses his easy goal opportunity, you can hear the song "Slaughtered" by Pantera in the background.  Nice!!  I think I have a new favorite NHL team.  Any team who blasts Pantera during a game is cool in my book.
