Despite being comprised of the most skilled players in the world, the high-paced intensity of NHL gameplay usually calls for a brain fart or two, even among some of the league's greats.
Once could argue that the Toronto Maple Leafs season has been one big blooper, but we won't go there. So here's a look at some of the biggest bloopers of the 2014-15 season.
The Chicago Blackhawks are always a threat in the West. Besides their well-balanced offense, they have great goaltending ... usually.
If it makes Crawford feel any better, Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier one-upped the Hawks netminder, letting in a shot by Arizona Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson from the Coyotes' blue line.
It was also the fastest short-handed goal to start a period in NHL history.
He may be playing in Florida, but that doesn't mean Roberto Luongo can hide from his biggest blunders. On Feb. 10 in a game against the Anaheim Ducks, Luongo let in a bouncing shot from just inside the red line.
Luckily, his Panthers were already beating up on the Ducks and won the game 6-2.
It's one thing to get scored on, but it's another thing for a team to score on themselves.
However, when Dennis Wideman tried to play the puck back to the point, it eluded Mason Raymond, going past the last man back and toward the empty cage. There was nothing any of the Flames could do but watch in disbelief.
After Holtby made a save, the 25-year-old lost the puck in his equipment. It took a long look by Holtby and the referees before the puck was finally found.
Hayes then somehow got his stick stuck in Lecavalier's helmet. Lecavalier tried to get it out, but resorted to just ditching the helmet entirely.
As several of the above videos demonstrate, being a goalie is not easy. On top of eluding screens and getting in front of 100 mph slap shots, netminders have to be careful not to trip on the red line.
Rumors have circulated over the last couple years that the NHL may consider putting advertisements on jerseys to help generate revenue.
During a Jan. 6 game against the Edmonton Oilers, Zetterberg got an advertisement stuck to his jersey and skated around with it, unaware that it was following him.
Having played only 13 games for the Panthers the previous two seasons, Alex Petrovic was definitely eager to make an impression on his coach this season.
Petrovic missed the hit and flew over the boards, nearly landing in Luongo's lap.
The new NHL is all about speed, but sometimes the pace of the game is too much for the players to handle. Just ask forward David Moss.
Moss was leaving the penalty box after serving a penalty in an Oct. 16 game and got one of his gloves stuck in the penalty box door. He was in such a hurry that he skated off without it.
