Scott Hartnell came into Tuesday's game against Detroit having taken just 18 faceoffs all season.



He took 16 against the Red Wings because Claude Giroux is nursing a bruised hand.



"What do you mean one hand?" Giroux asked, trying to be serious.



"Hartsy's been good on faceoffs and in the playoffs sometimes I get kicked out, so we want Hartsy to get in there. He's got a heavy stick and he works hard for faceoffs."



Hartnell wasn't bad, going 7 for 16 -- or 44 percent.
