After losing his stick in the neutral zone on Monday night, Washington Capitals forward Mikhail Grabovski did everything he could to make a play to set up his teammate.
It did not go well.
The silver lining? It was hilarious.
You can't blame him for trying, especially since we can recall a few plays in recent history involving players doing the exact same thing (minus the falling down).
Back in 2008 Jarkko Ruutu, then a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins, found himself in a similar position and nearly pulled it off.
And then were Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson in last year's playoffs (via @Wham_City).
That's how it's supposed to work. But give Grabovski an 'A' for effort anyway.
