Earlier this season against the Leafs, Capitals Head Coach Barry Trotz got struck in the head by a puck. Despite bleeding from the forehead, Trotz stayed in the game. Later his toughness went viral after a soccer coach dived when hit by a paper airplane.
Thursday night in San Jose, Trotz nearly got nailed by the biscuit again.
The puck flew off the ice after a neutral zone pass was deflected into the Caps bench.
Trotz’s reaction was priceless. After flashing a wry smile, Trotz wiped his brow as if to say WHEW! I lucked out on that one!
