Let’s chuckle at goalie flubs by Mike Smith, Al Montoya (Video)

It is Sunday morning, so there’s a chance that you’re less likely to roll out of bed grumbling.

Still, you could have had a tough night. Maybe your team lost. Perhaps you suffered some social shortcomings at a bar/party/against online opponents.

Whatever the case may be, if you need a laugh, this post might be your tonic.

This post covers two flubs from Saturday night. The video above the headline¬†marks the second goal of Josh Archibald’s career, scored one period after his first-ever marker. It’s not the first example of Mike Smith being a bit too adventurous handling the puck, though it stands to mention that his better moments generally fail to make highlight/blooper reels.

The biggest saving grace for Smith is that the Coyotes ended up edging the Penguins 4-3 in OT. (Read more about how this result affects the Penguins’ Metro prospects here.)

Smith had a busy night when it came to making us giggle, really:

While the Coyotes were able to win despite that Smith flub, the Montreal Canadiens fell 4-2 to the St. Louis Blues with Al Montoya in net. Montoya had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction in slipping on this early goal:

Hey, at least Montoya didn’t allow 10 goals this time around.
