Great goals, huge hits and amazing saves are nice and all, but these memorable missteps live on in infamy.

We spend most of the time on sites like this talking about outstanding achievements in sports - the most amazing plays, accomplished athletes, or spectacular teams of our time.

David Legwand's Hand Trick

Leggy's hands were up to some strange things during the Preds' 2012 playoff run, but none cost the team more dearly than a puck which he batted out of the air and into the slot, where the Coyotes' Radim Vrbata pounced on it to give Phoenix a daunting 3-1 lead in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals:
