In the closing minutes of the Predators' 4-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday, Smith somehow shot the puck over the glass while skating in front of a wide-open net.

As you can tell, he was a little embarrassed by the missed opportunity, but at least he was on home ice, where the Nashville fans always have their players' backs:
