Sydor Gets 70 Stiches

Daryl Sydor took a puck to his face early in the 2nd period today. from the Tampa Tribune,
"It's very scary [to see an injury like that]," said Lightning F Martin St. Louis, who helped a woozy Sydor from the ice. "I don't think he was dazed, I just think he was shocked - just like the rest of us. It could be any of us because the puck travels at an incredible speed and sometimes you don't see it coming." After being helped to the dressing room, Sydor received 70 stitches to reconnect the skin of what team medical personnel labeled a severe facial laceration near Sydor's mouth. Doctors didn't finish stitching Sydor's gash until right before the Lightning's 6-0 win ended. He did not speak to reporters after the game.
