WATCH: John Tavares pulls out his own tooth

I think the grossest part of watching New York Islanders captain John Tavares pull out his own tooth is the moment you realize that the trainer is already holding a different tooth. The Islanders ended up losing to Chicago Blackhawks, 3-2 Friday night.  Hey, at least his team scored the same number of goals as the number of teeth he is now missing.

Dee Karl: Two lost Points & a few lost teeth

That’s hockey. John Tavares had the same teeth he had replaced a few months ago knocked out again last night in Chicago. He went to the bench, pulled them out and handed them to the trainer. He put his mouth guard back in and took his next shift. HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN??? How? Simple. That’s Hockey. The Islanders faced the Stanley Cup champions for the first time...

Dee Karl: Matt Donovan Has a Day

Matt Donovan has been a bit of an oddity since he was drafted in 2008. Yes, 2008. The same year as Josh Bailey and Travis Hamonic. To be fair, it’s also the same year as Jyri Niemi and Jared Spurgeon. But good defensemen take time to develop. Not all of them will turn out to be a Drew Doughty. (They also make for good reading with your morning coffee if you had Newsday...
