08:29 AM ET 01.01 | Welcome Tyler Wotherspoon to the Tough Guy Hall of Fame, IIHF World Junior Championship category. It was a rough first period for [Wotherspoon] against Russia. First, he got clipped in the right cheek by a skate, which required the cut to be glued shut on the bench. Back on the ice a few minutes later, he got driven into the boards from behind by Russia's Valeri Nichushkin, who received a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct. Canada scored twice on the ensuing power play. Wotherspoon had to go for stitches after the hit into the boards split open the cut he had received from the skate. "I had a guy come in and tell me when we scored. That was good of him," said Wotherspoon. "The boys played well on the power play."

I sure hope that "dirty" Canadian didn't hurt the boards.

All I have to say to Tyler is, "Keep doing it, son! You'll look like Frankenstein by the time the WJC is over but .... you'll have a Gold Medal.

No penalty on the first cut Roamer as there shouldn't have been.

Could someone please put some Krazy Glue on Bettman's and Fehr's chairs next time they sit down to negotiate?

Oh! And, bolt the chairs to the floor!

I guess that explains why I still cry about the knee that got stitches in when I was 9. Sniff.
