Hockey players are notoriously tough. How tough? Well, take a look at this video from last night's Red Wings/Devils game. It features Detroit right wing Daniel Alfredsson skating around on the ice trying to find some of the teeth that got knocked out of his mouth during the contest. Eventually, he was able to find them, pick them up, and take them to the bench area. And then—wouldn't you know?—he went right back into the game and finished his shift. He's going to have some dental work done today to repair the gaps that are in his mouth:

How crazy is that? Alfredsson was skating around with missing teeth last night. Meanwhile, Dwyane Wade was flopping like this. And guess who got a foul called in his favor? Hint: It wasn't the guy who's at the dentist right now.
