Draper's smile

Kris Draper, who turned 37 today, had three teeth displaced when he was hit in the mouth with a Dallas Drake pass in the first period of Game 6 of the Western Conference final. The good news is that Draper scored the game's first goal when the puck bounced down from his face and into the net. The bad news is that the impact displaced three of his teeth.

So far, Draper has been able to keep the teeth. The team dentist braced the teeth when Draper left the ice at American Airlines Arena in Dallas. Draper has had x-rays since he's been back in Detroit, but so far it looks as though he won't lose the teeth.
