    Volchenkov takes a 90 mile per hour slapshot off his head, gets 15 stitches and he wants to go in game two.

    I love that the only thing potentially holding Volchenkov back from playing is the fact his swollen puck-shaped welt might be too large for a helmet to fit over

    No sport comes even close to the punishment these guys take in the playoffs.

    And yes, that includes the NFL where they play once a week.

    I was in a bar last night watching the game, didn't know how bad the injury was, but I told the person I was with that there was a good chance he'd be back that game after getting stitched up.

    Hockey players and rugby players are a breed apart.

    GB, you're right. Forgot about rugby players

    And then there's Aussie football.
