The Edmonton Oilers and LA Kings were fighting with just over 5 minutes left in the game and was tied at 3, when Mike Smith decided to try to play the puck up the middle of the ice causing a horrible turnover. In his defence he managed to make a save but this got his whole team scrambling and wound up scoring just a few seconds later.

Check out the play here:



In his post game conference, Mike Smith said the fans energy got him screwed up:


We got out of our structure a little bit just because it was so energetic you know and the energy you obviously feed off it and maybe it got us out of our structure a little bit.

So all Edmonton Oilers fans for game 2, remember. Don't say a word during the game or it will cause your goalie to blow the game.
