Mike Green's ear wound

By Dan Steinberg


Mike Green said it was "just a cut." Bruce Boudreau said his blue-liner was "day-to-day."

This is the cut in question. Sure, it's nothing like the time Darryl Boyce's nose fell off. But it's a pretty healthy gash.

(If you're into entirely disgusting things and haven't seen it yet, that visual is here.)

Story with the nose is he went into the boards and was unlucky enough to meet the camera hole. If you do not know, that is the hole through which photographers can take pictures. Broke his hose and ended up with the nice "little" cut.

Which is worse, that nose or Barker's?

If that's not enough reason to wear facemasks, I don't know what's convincing ya.

There was a moment in the broadcast where I thought Green's ear might be pulling a Boyce. It's a nasty cut, but it's much better than I had anticipated.

Well I guess the Caps need to go after Orpik next game. I mean, they keep blaming Steckel for the accidental hit on Crosby so... Sorry - using idiot logic there made my brain hurt.
