GIF: Blackhawks' Jeremy Morin misses check, goes for a ride on the boards
Chicago Blackhawks forward Jeremy Morin completely missed his first period check on the Blues' Patrik Berglund in Sunday afternoon's game -- and by completely missed, we mean he completely missed. His miscalculation sent him on a rail-slide down the dasher in front of Chicago's bench all the way to the glass partition before he fell in amongst his sitting teammates, making for a funny moment in a rather tense game.
I think the best part of the Morin bench slide GIF is how nonchalant the bench is. They're just like "Morin, hey buddy, whatcha doin'?"For Chicago fans, Morin likely brought to mind a Cub by whiffing at a pitch, or a cold Old Style sliding down a long bar at one of the Windy City's finest alehouses. However, he did make up for his gaffe with a goal later in the game to help the Blackhawks beat St. Louis, 4-2.
