Eric Belanger removes his tooth

After Eric Belanger took a stick to the mouth on Friday night, he headed to the bench, received some treatment, then reached into his mouth and removed a tooth. That video is above. If you don't like things that are bloody and awesome, you might not want to watch.

The video comes via RMNB, which points out that Belanger proceeded to take the next faceoff.

And next time you accuse the Caps of being soft, please do remember this video. NHL softness is a relative concept.

Ouch, I guess now he'll have the Scott Walker look. :)

I still can't believe they didn't call a penalty on that. Given how the PP is doing, it might not have mattered, it's just the principle of the thing...

I agree. Why was no penalty called?

The refs just didn't see it. The announcers didn't see it until the replay.

The arena certainly saw it. We were screaming. I would imagine Eric B had a few choice words to. Yeowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

The Caps are SOFT. If they weren't SOFT, someone would have ripped the guy who sticked Belanger to threads. They did nothing. Ironic that Brashear was in the crowd last night. He must be having a silent laugh to himself.

I've had to do that before. I'm sure adrenaline working as a natural anesthetic for ErBel.

Can you imagine if this happened to a baseball player? he'd be out for the year.

It wasn't called because it was a follow through of Bergeron's shot. Still should of been a penalty though, or someone should of gone after Bergeron. No need to follow through a clearing shot up 7' in the air.
