WATCH: Mike Green Lays a Huge Hit on Oilers Forward Jesse Joensuu (NOT)



We've heard of changing on the fly, but this missed check by Washington Capitals d-man Mike Green is surely not what the Caps had in mind. Watch as Green fails to recognize the fact that Oilers forward Jesse Joensuu has moved by the time he arrives, and tumbles face-first into his team's bench, prompting an impromptu line change.

Not to worry. Alexander Ovechkin tallied his sixth goal of the season later in the game, a nifty little one-timer from the slot to put the Capitals ahead 3-1, and Washington went on to get a home W against the reeling Oilers, 4-2.
