“It’s dangerous down at ice level,” MSG Network Rangers play-by-play announcer Sam Rosen said.
MSG Rangers reporter John Giannone knows that all too well.
Late in the second period of last night’s game with the Islanders, a puck was tossed to the sicelines, finding Giannone’s face.
The bloodied Giannone stayed on the air, shown getting medical treatment. While the trainer worked on him, Giannone kept his work ethic intact, shown adjusting the microphone on his headset.
Rosen called his colleague a “gamer.”
As the patch job on Giannone’s nose continued, he was asked about his condition.
“Oh, it’s all good, Sammy. I’ve got a good medical staff with me.”
While he spoke you could see a close-up of his blood-stained face, causing Rosen to moan, “Oh!”
Al Trautwig took over the hosting between periods and echoed the thoughts, undoubtedly, of many fans.
“Did I just see that? Wow, that was scary,” Trautwig said.
