Rob Scuderi was back in practice today, two days after receiving a nasty cut to his lip that required approximately 25 stitches. “They did a good job though, compared to the way it looked when I went in,” Scuderi said.
Scuderi has what he called a “bruised tooth,” but so far has not lost any teeth and isn’t expecting to wear any type of face shield in tomorrow’s game against St. Louis. Other than the stitches, Scuderi said his recovery has been limited to “antibiotics and a lot of Neosporin.” The biggest negative has been Scuderi’s inability to eat solid food, which has limited his intake to oatmeal over the past two days.
On a lighter note, Scuderi relayed the story of how his 4-year-old son, Ryan, recently received his first-even stitches after a ball-hockey accident. “When he was watching the (Detroit) game, he said I was copying him,” Scuderi said with a (somewhat-crooked) smile.
