At the end of tonight's second period, the Rangers' Mark Staal attempted to clear the puck towards the boards. Staal's backhand clear went awry and over the boards, into the space between the team benches where MSG Network's John Giannone was reporting for the Rangers telecast. Giannone was struck square in the nose, but stayed in his spot and kept reporting. Sidney Crosby was not available for comment.
