Mike Green pulls a Torii Hunter, flips over boards

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

Mike Green's attempt to finish a hip check ended up with him flipping over the boards.

Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green tried to finish his check against Oilers forward Jesse Joensuu on Monday night, and well, it didn't exactly go as planned.

Let's just say that Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter probably knows how he feels.
