Hockey players are tough. Their coaches apparently are, too.

Washington Capitals coach Barry Trotz led by example on Saturday as he remained behind the bench despite taking a puck to his forehead.

The puck left a dent and a bit of a cut, but Trotz soldiered on as the Caps played the Toronto Maple Leafs.
