Brayden Schenn's stomach gets sliced by Dainius Zubrus' skate

Brayden Schenn had a nasty cut on his stomach following an encounter with a skate on Tuesday night.

Hockey can be dangerous, and Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn is a lucky guy right about now.

In the second period of their game in New Jersey on Tuesday, Schenn was accidentally kicked in the stomach by Devils forward Dainius Zubrus. The result was a gnarly gash across his midsection that the NBC Sports Network cameras were able to catch while he was getting repair work done on the bench.

My goodness. That could have been really, really bad. Fortunately for Schenn he was not only able to remain in the game, he went on to score the game-winning goal in overtime. That's quite a night.
