Mike Green’s missed check turns into a hilarious crash into the bench

Every now and then a hit occurs in hockey that requires a collective ‘daaaaamn’ from the viewers due its awesome nature. This is not one of those hits.


You could just feel Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green’s giddiness as he lined up a huge hit on Edmonton’s Jesse Joensuu. Head down, puck caught in the skates, body square to the oncoming check; it was the ideal recipe for a destructive hit. And then, with one step to the right, it turned into an even better whiff.

At least he took embarrassing miss in stride.
