We've had our share of Goal of the Year candidate posts this season -- like this recent one from Evgeni Malkin. Some of them are just too good to ignore.

This isn't one of those posts.

No, this is the other side of things, the ugliest misses of the season. The latest entrant into the competition was Erik Condra's miss in Tuesday night's 1-0 Senators win over the Bruins.

I sure am glad the Sens didn't need another goal otherwise, ouch. I mean, he just missed a completely unobstructed cage from just a shade outside of the blue paint.

Luckily for Condra and his pride, I don't think he'll take home the shame of the top blooper this season. Craig Smith's miss earlier this season is going to be really hard to beat. They even started the goal horn in Nashville prematurely.

My favorite part about the Smith scene -- completely underrated, by the way -- is Sergei Kostitsyn coming over to give Smith a hug and then slowly slinking away once he realizes it was no goal.
