Anze Kopitar still grooving after puck to face

Anze Kopitar had to get 20 stitches above his left upper lip where he was hit by a puck shot by Dustin Brown in the third period of last night’s game. He returned to the game, which according to him, was no big deal.
“I wanted to make sure it was nothing serious,” Kopitar said. “As soon as I found that out, it was really a no-brainer to come back. I’m sure everybody else in this room would do the same thing.”
On the contrary. But that’s the culture in hockey. Players play, puck to the face or not.
Sutter joked: “there goes the modeling career. Best-looking Slovenian athlete.”
And Kopitar responded: “I think that ship has sailed a long time ago.”
