Justin Faulk’s skate blade came down in the general area of Giroux’s left Achilles. G appeared to be in a lot of pain and was carried off the ice, but the cut was only surface deep and just required a few stitches. He may have been saved by the cut-resistant Kevlar socks he wore beneath his equipment. Whatever the case, he expects to play on Saturday.
