Minor Scare for Devante Smith-Pelly at Monday’s Capitals Morning Skate

IMG_0190

The Washington Capitals looked to be fully healthy for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Then a minor scare happened just minutes before Monday’s morning skate began. Fourth-line right winger Devante Smith-Pelly got hit in the face with a puck.

The culprit was a shot from Andre Burakovsky.

Smith-Pelly said that Burakovsky owes him at least a dinner. While blood was dripping down his face, he said he was fine and didn’t lose any teeth. He called it a wake up call which is sometimes needed on a Monday morning.

Alex Chiasson was DSP’s placeholder on the fourth-line at morning skate.

Smith-Pelly came back out a few minutes after getting repairs from a trainer. He was back out on the ice and practiced with the second penalty kill unit.

Smith-Pelly is good to go for Game 4.
