Washington Capitals forward Daniel Winnik left Thursday's game versus theFlorida Panthers after taking a slapshot to the back of the head.
Sprawling out to block a shot on a third-period penalty kill, Winnik came within mere inches from disaster, but luckily was able to skate off the ice under his own power. He ultimately returned to the contest.
However, Winnik did not escape completely unscathed.
