WASHINGTON (USA TODAY) --The Washington Capital's Alex Ovechkin took a puck to the face during practice Thursday morning, and the result is something pretty gruesome.

A team spokesman said the Capitals' star is on his way to the doctor's office to receive stitches. Ovechkin is on a goal-scoring tear (six goals in the past six games plus four assists).

Judging by his tweet, Ovie doesn't seem too worried -- and slightly crazy, in that hockey player crazy way.
