Why hockey players can kick your ass

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Braydon Coburn is doubtful for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals after taking a puck in the face on Sunday night, a cut that required over 50 stitches to close. Coburn’s flight home Sunday night was quite unpleasant. The defenseman had lightheadedness and vomited, but had gotten over that by Monday.

He will still be listed as doubtful for the game on Tuesday. (link)
Doubtful?!? Really, just Doubtful?

Heck, if I take a puck to my face while I'm wearing a full cage I would be listed as...

"Misty-Eyed and Watching from the Skybox."

And for anything requiring double-digit stitches, you can just put me down as...

"Retired, Golfing."
