The Blackhawks beat the Winnipeg Jets at United Center, 4-1, on Wednesday night. Ho-hum.

Things got really interesting when the Jets’ Adam Pardy ways checked through the glass by Brandon Bollig. Hawks writer Mark Lazerus was on the scene to break down the action – the Instagram video above fills in the blanks, the full video highlight even more.

So lesson here? Leave the helmets to the professionals. And lay off the $10 beers.

In the end, though, there was apparently a reasonable excuse for the helmet larceny:
