Update On Lidstrom

This is why I should never post right after a game: the news usually will change after a few hours.

Today it is being reported that Lidstrom broke his nose when he got hit by the puck last night. He also got 25 stitches under his right eyebrow. But his eye is fine and he should only be out for three games. How in the world do you NOT do damage to your eye with an injury like that? I wonder if this will teach him that he needs to start wearing a visor? Good grief.

broken noses are so very painful

I wouldn't know just HOW painful they are--and I NEVER want to know!

One good thing came out of this, though--Lidstrom is thinking about wearing a shield full-time. I certainly hope he does! Too many face injuries are happening--and you CAN'T replace an eye if it gets damaged too badly!
