GIF: Tomas Jurco takes a whack at Ben Bishop

It's actually exactly how it sounds. Detroit Red Wings forward and recent call up Tomas Jurco took quite the hack at the back of Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop's neck. 

While Bishop leaned in to cover up the puck, Jurco was in the process of taking a whack at it and we can only hope it was unintentional. He also could have been trying to take some height off of 6'7" Bishop.

Bishop was not injured on the play and stayed in the game. No penalty was assessed to Jurco for the decapitation attempt.
