Since the Washington Capitals didn’t play on Wednesday night, I’m guessing that this occurred during the Capitals Tuesday night 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders or in practice. This obviously isn’t Alex Ovechkin’s first time getting stitched up, but in typical Ovechkin fashion, he seemed to take it as a joke. After all, this is the guy that lost one of his fake teeth when he took it out to play basketball and hasn’t gotten it replaced since. Plus, being on a bit of a hot streak will put anyone in a good mood.
