Video: Hossa with the miss to end all misses

“How do you miss that?”

It’s one of those things fans scream, especially in big-game situations (and especially after a beverage or two). Even if you understand that you wouldn’t even get close to getting a given scoring chance, there are those desperate moments when it’s really difficult not to blurt that statement out.

This chance by Chicago Blackhawks freak-of-nature Marian Hossa probably drew out that response. If you’re the masochistic type of Blackhawks fan, you might watch this repeatedly. Others will check it out because it was a memorable moment:

If tonight is anything like Game 2, a miss like this will be buried under a torrent of scoring chances and goals. Then again, if it’s a close one like Game 1, Hossa’s miss may sting.
