Stars' Krys Barch Loses Eight Teeth to High Stick: Krys Barch lost eight teeth when he was high-sticked in the mouth by Chris Chelios during the first period of the Dallas Stars/Detroit Red Wings game Thursday. After a short locker room trip he played the rest of the game. "He came back to the bench smiling, and saying, 'I think I lost a few,'" head coach Dave Tippett said.

Two interesting bits of tid from that article:
1) Krys Barch had a mouth full of blood and broken teeth, and yet he was still ready to fight Detroit's Aaron Downey.

"I had my gloves off, I was ready to go," Barch said.

That's awesome.

2) Detroit is now 6-8-0 when trailing after two periods.

That's awesome too.

The teeth didn't fall out. They were shattered ... through a mouthguard.

I still play some hockey. I also grind my teeth at night. Doing that, my teeth and gums hurt a lot, and many times I have to get back to the House of Pain (dentist) to repair broken or chipped teeth. My one fear is, if I do get whacked while playing, that my teeth will just shatter as well. I'm going to go lay down now.
