Moen Lucky To Escape Serious Injury

from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,

Travis Moen never saw it coming Monday night, the skate of Ottawa’s Matt Cullen carving into his face like a scalpel.

“It hit me so fast, I didn’t have time to be scared,” the Canadiens forward said Thursday, speaking in the team’s Bell Centre dressing room after a brief morning skate.

Moen’s injury is a grotesque sight, a beautiful/macabre template for any horror-movie makeup artist.

His Canadiens cap, pulled tightly over his forehead, did little to disguise a ragged stretch of about 50 sutures that begins above the bridge of his nose, curves through his left eyebrow, dips into his eyelid and meanders to the corner of and below the eye.
