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.

Hawks get out of rut with 3-2 victory over Islanders
