That’s gotta hurt!

John Giannone, the rinkside reporter for MSG's New York Rangers broadcasts, got smacked in the face by a flying puck during a game Thursday night, and has the cringe-worthy clip.

The veteran broadcaster was hit right in the bridge of his nose with just three seconds remaining in the second period of the Rangers game against the New York Islanders.

Giannone was left blooded in the incident, but after being treated by medical personnel, he actually went back to work for the third period of the game.
