The Rangers won their sixth game in a row this afternoon, beating the Edmonton Oilers 4-2, but it didn’t come without a price: Jimmy Vesey‘s teeth!

One word: ouch!

To make matters worse, not only did he have his teeth kicked out—literally—but according to his Instagram post, they were lodged in his front lip!
