Scottie Upshall's check attempt throws him head over heels into Panthers bench (Video)

Florida Panthers right winger Scottie Upshall missed on a check attempt and went head over heels into the Panthers bench during Friday night's NHL playoff game against the New Jersey Devils.

It happened in the third period when Upshall made a leaping attempt to check Devils right winger Stephen Gionta in front of the Panthers bench. Gionta was able to dodge out of the way, and Upshall ended up throwing himself over the wall and upside down into the bench.

The Devils won Game 1 of their playoff series with the Panthers 3-2.
