O’Sullivan’s Annual Dental Problems

From Lisa Dillman at the LA Times,

“I was just chasing after the puck and the defenseman got to it before me and shot it and [it] went directly into my mouth,” said O’Sullivan, who thought that the shot came from defenseman Christian Backman.

“It’s funny. Well, it’s not funny but it’s ironic, almost a year ago to the day I got my other two teeth knocked out” against Colorado.

“Both times I saw it but I just couldn’t move quick enough to do anything about it,” O’Sullivan said. “It’s something about early October that’s not good for my mouth.”

This time, O’Sullivan said he lost three teeth, needed about six stitches and suffered a broken bone below his nose. “These [the teeth] were still in but they were back in my throat almost. It was pretty gross.”
