Capitals Head Coach Barry Trotz and a deflected puck almost had an impromptu meeting of the minds at Canadian Tire Centre, Saturday.
During the second period of the Canada/USA pre-tournament game, Canadian defenseman Marc Vlasic sent a cross-ice pass to Shea Weber – except Weber could not coral the biscuit. The puck instead ricocheted off his blade and hit the back of the glass, a few feet away from a ducking Barry Trotz.
Now that’s a close call.
Trotz flashed a wry smile after picking his face up from his hands. Meanwhile, Canadian center Tyler Seguin, who could not help but giggle, turned around and gave Trotz a thumbs up.
The night before in Columbus Trotz almost got hit by a stick when a fracas broke out in front of the Team Canada bench.
