Video: NY Rangers Announcer Takes a Puck to the Face—Keeps Announcing

Reason punchillion hockey rules:
John Giannone has been around hockey players long enough to know that you play through little hurts.
Giannone, the ice-level reporter for New York Rangers broadcasts, showed his tough side Thursday when he was hit in the face by a flying puck during the Rangers-Islanders game at Madison Square Garden. With blood streaming from the bridge of his nose and down to his chin, Giannone stayed in his spot and finished the second period.

P.S. At the end of the video they go to an announcer in the clubhouse. Who is the TV actor that guy sounds like?! He sounds just like…that guy…on…WE DON’T KNOW! WHO IS IT?
Found him! That announcer at the end sounds just like J.K. Simmons from “The Closer”!
