Jordin Tootoo of the Nashville Predators doesn't have the best reputation in the NHL when it comes to embellishing plays (things like this on Monday night don't really help), and he doesn't always get the benefit of the doubt, even when he probably should.

During the first period of Nashville's game in Calgary on Tuesday night, the forward took a high stick in the face from Flames defenseman Scott Hannan.

After the period when Tootoo was speaking with analyst -- and former NHL coach -- Terry Crisp on the between periods interview, his nose started to bleed, presumably a result of the impact from Hannan's stick, forcing the interview to be cut short.

Unless he shoved a couple of blood capsules up his nose before going on camera, you can't really fake that one.
