Playoff hockey is a tough time for everyone. Star players often get down in the muck and mire. In the case of Tanner Glass, he is always down there. So when he took a puck to the face on the first night of the playoffs, it almost felt like a rite of passage. The cut isn’t too big, but I wouldn’t want to take a puck to the face.

Watch as Tanner Glass takes a puck to face during a dump-in attempt.
Tanner Glass is the last of a dying breed in the NHL – the diminutive enforcer. When he is on the ice, you have to watch out for him because you never know what is going to happen.

A Tanner Glass postgame interview Saturday night on Root Sports was videbombed by … well, a dongshot. The Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 on Saturday, and Glass had an assist in the game. He was interviewed after the contest, but the interviewer chose a poor location nearby what looked like the training room. […]

Glass hasn’t played since breaking his hand in a 3-2 loss against Montreal on November 23.
