Detroit Red Wings’ Brendan Perlini grateful facial injury wasn’t worse - The Detroit News
Perlini took about 22 stitches after a skate blade brushed up against his nose, near his eye, Tuesday night in Buffalo. He’s got an interesting perspective on the situation thanks to an Army friend:
“I come away from the game and you’re grateful for those little things,” said Perlini, who caught the skate of Buffao’s Henri Jokiharju with his face, but escaped serious injury. “He’s (Perlini’s friend) seen guys get shot and killed, and for me, I have a cut on my nose and I’m very grateful to wake up and do everything I can do and live a normal life.

I’m going to get ahead of things and just be pre-mad about Kassian not getting suspended long enough for doing this. What a donkey play.
