Canadiens’ Alexi Emelin Destroys Teammate Erik Cole With Hip Check (Video)

alexi emelin hits erik coleIn an earlier post on Devin Setoguchi’s comical shootout failure from last night, I happened to mention that for once, “it wasn’t the Habs embarrassing themselves.”  Truth be told, that statement isn’t entirely true.  Sure, the Canadiens weren’t the most embarrassing team on the ice during last night’s game against the Minnesota Wild, but it doesn’t mean they weren’t trying to be.

Evidence of the above can be found in the video below.  It features a brilliant hip check by Montreal defender Alexi Emelin, who missed his original target, but didn’t miss teammate Erik Cole. Thankfully, we have footage of it from every possible angle.

Check it out.
