Another bloody mouth in Anaheim

Jeez, it appears that everyone in Anaheim is inspired by Teemu’s cut-to-the-mouth (and his resulting point increase). From the OC Register:

"With Pronger absent from practice because of flu-like symptoms, Ducks hearts skipped more than a few beats when a deflected puck struck Scott Niedermayer in the face."
Don’t know if that’s enough to make Grabia’s day, but hey, it’s a start. Pronger’s sick? Check. Niedermayer’s hurting? Check. Teemu’s jaw is wired shut? Nah, he’s got that mutant healing factor going for him.

(By the way, one guy in Anaheim who knows a thing or two about bloody-mouth-syndrome is radio colorman and former enforcer Brent Severyn, who is gaining local notoriety about his off-the-wall phrases, affectionately known as Severynisms. Check out the new message board devoted to his fisticuff-altered colloquialisms—it’s a dandy.)

Get well, everyone. Regicide starts tomorrow.

Do you know how much I laughed at his "dipsy doodle dandy" comment during one of the pre-season games?! And then last night during the Canes v. Sabres, someone said "dipsy do"... I don't know what's going on in the commentator's booth, but some strange words come flying out of them mouths...

I hope everyone is healthy enough to play tomorrow.

What is with Brent severyn? He does say the strangest things.

Flu-like symptoms? I hope the media doesn't ask him what's wrong. He won't be able to get into it, due to family reasons.

Does this team have Hugh Jackman? Methinks not!

Earl, Pahlsson has signed an extension.

I presume you don't know yet.

Or you're off getting loaded to celebrate.
