Flyers’ Brayden Schenn Gets Stomach Sliced Open by Skate, Proceeds to Score Game-Winning Goal in OT (Videos)
If I told you that a National Hockey League player had his stomach sliced open by a skate, but still managed to return to the game and score the game-wining goal in overtime after getting some repairs on the bench via the medical staff, you probably wouldn’t be all that surprised.
