Video: That's hockey, folks! Player gets torso slashed by skate, plays on, scores winner
Philadelphia Flyers player Brayden Schenn is one tough dude
We were going to make a 'cut above the rest' joke here but we're better than that. Well, we're not but what Brayden Schenn did last night deserves more than a flippant remark. The Philadelphia Flyer was playing against the New Jersey Devils and a fairly harmeless tangle with Dainius Zubrus somehow ended up with Zubrus' skate cutting a very large gash in Schenn's stomach.
Did Schenn go to hospital to get stitches? Nope, he got a little bit of treatment, stayed in the game and only went and scored the game winner in overtime.
Once again, hockey players = hard bastards.
