The NHL’s top two teams faced off Wednesday night, and while it was the Chicago Blackhawks who headed home with a loss, the Anaheim Ducks lost some things as well — a few teeth.
During the faceoff after Teemu Selanne’s goal in the third period, Hawks forward Brandon Bollig nailed Andrew Cogliano in the mouth with a high stick, but all four officials somehow missed the blatant penalty. Cogliano went down in obvious pain and skated off the ice with a bloody mouth, but the Ducks center wasn’t quite ready to call it a night.
Any ol’ hockey player can sacrifice a few teeth for the game, but Cogliano made everybody question their toughness when he returned to the ice to finish out the game — without ever missing a shift.
