John Giannone of the MSG Network got up close and personal with frozen rubber Thursday night as he stood at his post between the Islanders and Rangers benches. At the tail end of the second period, Marc Staal of the Rangers flipped the puck up into the section where Giannone stands and it caught him in the nose.
But as you’ll see, Giannone falls under the “gamer” category. He didn’t even stop reporting as the training staff was cleaning him up. Giannone returned for the third period.
