It doesn't get much closer than that. Keep your head on a swivel.

Every hockey arena warns fans and spectators to be watching for pucks coming into the crowd. Well here, Pierre McGuire of NBC sits in between the two benches as the 3rd broadcaster for the crew.

During the Tampa Bay Lightening and Carolina Hurricanes game, McGuire was doing his Inside the Glass segment when a puck comes screatching right by his nose. You can see McGuire is starting to lean back but the hockey gods were looking out for him as the puck just barely misses him.

See the video here.

As professional as ever, McGuire said, "It's all part of what goes on down here."
