Alex Ovechkin Got 22 Stitches After Taking a Puck to the Chin in Practice

Alexander Ovechkin’s crazy mixed up season continued this morning at Capitals practice. Ovi took a puck to the chin that opened up a pretty gnarly cut that required 22 stitches. Of course, he tweeted pictures of the before and after of the cut. I mean, it is 2013. As Ovi himself said, “It’s hockey ))) hahaha.” Indeed. And ouch. [@OVI8]
