Video: Keith Ballard Flips McGinn With Textbook Hip Check

Keith Ballard had not played in the last seven playoff games for the Vancouver Canucks, but he made his presence felt during Game 4 against the San Jose Sharks with this huge hip check against Jamie McGinn.  The most interesting note is that it was McGinn that knocked Vancouver defenders Christian Ehrhoff and Aaron Rome out of the lineup with Game 3 hits that allowed Ballard to even play.
