#InTheFace: Condra is O.K.



There's something to be said for anyone that can put a positive spin on a scary incident. Last night, when Erik Condra left the game late in the third period after taking a puck to the mouth, a lot of fans feared the worst and visions of Chicago's Duncan Keith losing seven teeth in 2010 entered their minds.

(In fact, if you type 'Duncan Keith' into Google, the third autofill result is 'Duncan Keith teeth' at least it rhymes.)

The good news is Condra will be okay and actually made his way back to the bench during the shootout. Paul MacLean said last night that Condra was, in fact, available to shoot had the team required his services. All good signs.

The best sign of all, perhaps, came from Condra himself on Twitter after the game when he tweeted:

Now, I'm not sure about you folks, but that has to be one of the best self-referential hashtags of all-time. The Sens take on the Rangers on Thursday and Erik is expected to suit up as usual. He may look a little more like Bobby Clarke or Doug Gilmour, but things seemed to work out alright for them.

#InTheFace: a hashtag for the peskiest of injuries.
