Zach Bogosian crashes into boards after whiffing on check

Don't miss the check, or it's going to hurt.

When you commit yourself to a body check like Zach Bogosian did early in the third period against the Phoenix Coyotes on Monday night, you better make sure you finish it. If you don't, it could be really, really painful.

Bogosian found that out the hard way after Lauri Korpikoski skillfully dodged the hit.

Bogosian had to leave the game for a short while but later returned in the third period.

That was probably the only negative for the Jets on Monday as they absolutely crushed the Coyotes in the debut for new coach Paul Maurice, rolling to a 5-1 win.
