Blake Wheeler takes slapshot to the groin, gives epic response.

The Winnipeg Jets swept the Edmonton Oilers in their first round playoff series last night. During their win in Game 4, Jets captain Blake Wheeler took one for the team.

After Wheeler caught his breath, he played the remainder of the game into three overtimes. During the post game press conference, Wheeler was asked about his shot block and gave this amazing response.

I also have to give credit to this comment.

Players will do whatever it takes to win the Stanley Cup and this is only one example of that. All I’m saying is the Jets better win the cup or the hockey gods just ripped off Wheeler.
