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.

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.
