WASHINGTON - Being a leader means one has to take it on the chin every so often.
For Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin, taking one to the chin left him him in stitches Thursday.
At the morning practice, Ovechkin's chin was hit by a puck, resulting in a gash that needed stitches.
Naturally, he took a picture of the gash and tweeted almost immediately "It's Hockey...haha."
