What an absolute joke of a hit by Erskine. As a bruins fan nothing irks me more than that subtle little elbow to the head, and Horton and Savard can both attest to the fact that that hit has no place in the game at all. Erskine is the one who deserved the beating and probably a couple of games watching from the press box. Even if it wasn't Erskine someone on the Caps needed to take one on the chin for that bullcrap and it happened to be Hendricks. The fight itself? All Rinaldo. Threw every meaningful punch and threw them With conviction. Win Rinaldo and a 7.

Rinaldo punches straight through Hendricks' helmet on his way to a one sided double beat down But Erskine is "gonna have some 'splainin' to do" the next time these two teams meet Is DJ King still a Cap? His services may be needed Signed Matt Hendricks SergeantSchultz makes a great point about the linesman's double pump puck drop costing these two guys a game misconduct

Posted by SergeantSchultz on February 01, 2013 at 10:14 PM

Rinaldo on even the E. German ref's card. Shame they were tossed because the clown linesman has to pump fake the drop.

Posted by holidaysintexas on February 01, 2013 at 09:38 PM

Rinaldo just destroys Hendricks. Now hopefully someone will do the same to Erskine. I wonder how many games he'll get for that elbow? Crappy play from a crappy team.

Posted by SouthPaw017 on February 01, 2013 at 11:26 PM

Francesca Rinaldo rides Hendricks like a motor car on fire.... Cheap shot by Lack of fErskine....

Posted by rocky 1 on February 03, 2013 at 01:19 AM

Rinaldo easily in this tilt, very easily!

Posted by sedinfan on February 01, 2013 at 10:00 PM

Win Zinaldo, suspension Erskine.

Posted by Nick_Fotiu on February 03, 2013 at 09:54 AM

watching Zac Rinaldo settling scores.....begs the question.......where have you gone, Broad Street Bullies?????

Posted by GreatMurray on February 02, 2013 at 12:11 PM

Hendricks is gonna get some face time with Shanny and probably a 1 game suspension. Hendricks didn't get set for this tilt. Next time there will be a different result. This time Rinaldo gets the easy win.

Posted by Edit17 on February 02, 2013 at 10:10 AM

Bad no call from two refs who are right there. Them and the announcers must have been huffing glue in the parking lot before the game. Foreskin will be suspended. As for the fight, all Rino.

Posted by bammer24 on February 02, 2013 at 12:41 AM

Rinaldo with a victory for him and Simmonds since the ref blew it.So Erskine you haven`t grown out of your stage of being a Big Cheap Hitter. If I remember you have quite the history of your elbow or your knee or stick getting in the way of players.Enjoy your mini-vacation for this one.You got caught.

Posted by cible on February 02, 2013 at 12:22 AM

Hendricks is probably the worst fighter in the league!!!! Has this guy ever won a fight in his carrer? Dirty hit by erskine, shelley will probably give him a visit next game they play against or even simmonds!

Posted by bigbadboy98 on February 02, 2013 at 03:37 AM

RINALDO first win !!!! its fun to see bruins fans complain about ERSKINE !! cause of what happen .... to SAVARD and HORTON what about CHARA agains PACIO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ERSKINE is not the one ... who punching bag ....LUCIC !!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by tflyer on February 01, 2013 at 09:47 PM

ZAC ATTACK winner Rinaldo

Posted by MikeyMand17 on February 01, 2013 at 09:55 PM

Rinaldo and Hendricks are two small dudes. Rinaldo connected with 3-4 hard rights in a row and Hendricks really never got set. After missing a few Hendricks just get dropped by Rinaldo.

Posted by bruins rule on February 02, 2013 at 11:22 AM

rinaldo gets the win.

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on February 02, 2013 at 09:25 PM


Posted by chrisuko on February 02, 2013 at 11:12 AM

Arguably one of the most bias feeds there is. Not one mention of a possible elbowing penalty... Ridiculous. Anyway, nothing but Rinaldo in that one, Not even debatable

Posted by fernben8 on February 02, 2013 at 01:42 PM

No contest in the fight...rapid firing rights from Rinaldo. If I were a bettin' man, I see 3-5 games for Erskine.

Posted by sixclocks on October 20, 2013 at 07:40 PM

they were going to go and they thought the linemen had dropped the puck. no penalty ought to have been called except fighting and the idiot linesman needed a game misconduct.

Posted by drock_rust on February 02, 2013 at 08:02 AM

Did I miss something here? How did they not call an elbowing penalty and then make Rinaldo sit for the whole game for standing up for his team- granted it was against the wrong guy he was sending the message that they weren't gonna tolerate the cheap stuff. Rinaldo was pissed and won on emotion, don't think he did any damage, but certainly dominated. I give it a 6 and win for Rinaldo. Erksine better watch is ass next time they play.

Posted by peteybrown on February 02, 2013 at 10:20 PM

Love the idiot homer caps announcers. "It wasn't interference". Zac kicked his ass.

Posted by AC1026 on February 02, 2013 at 09:16 AM

Rinaldo smashes him...clear win.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 02, 2013 at 01:22 AM

All Rinaldo.

Posted by KDM810 on February 02, 2013 at 01:41 AM

Rinaldo beats Hendricks....shocker. Rinaldo and the rest of the Flyers don't go after Erskine...another shocker. I'll be curious to see how Shelley or Sestito fair against Big John next time they meet in Philly... Definitely an elbow: 3-5 games.

Posted by herewego on February 02, 2013 at 09:25 AM

Erskine's reputation as a banger preceded him on this one. He clearly crushes Simmonds with a perfectly placed elbow to the face of Simmonds and nobody answers the bell on behalf of the Flyers. Announcers clearly a clown-act suggesting Erskine's elbow was because he "flinched" at the oncoming Simmonds.

Posted by DARCY T on February 02, 2013 at 03:45 AM

that i call throwing 'em with anger...domination win rinaldo...and 7

Posted by hkhk on February 01, 2013 at 10:52 PM

might midget stands up does great job , but cheap shot by erskine is reason why a heavyweight must be dressed for every game. shelley sestito or both time for players to take back the nhl. dressing useless fedtenko awful signing..

Posted by Jack o on February 02, 2013 at 09:05 AM

What a cheap shot gotta be a suspension. How about the announcer saying Erskine flinched to protect himself. Reinaldo fought angry, easy win

Posted by Hockeyguy25 on February 02, 2013 at 10:31 PM

Angry flyer...well done !

Posted by QUIGGS22 on February 02, 2013 at 01:41 PM

Rinaldo dominates this one.

Posted by 2tuff4u on February 02, 2013 at 01:39 AM

Ronaldo answered the bell and whipped his butt. Ears line is too big for Rinaldo, but if he was lined up next to him, Rinaldo would have went right after him too. Love players that know their roles and pick up for their teammates. That washed up slob Erskine will get suspended and the entire crew of refs and Linemen all need to be suspended. They are making the game unsafe- bad ref crew.

Posted by Kolbyz on February 02, 2013 at 05:54 PM

Bea-U-tiful ! Zac Rinaldo Fed Hendricks atta boy zac

Posted by Kinky888 on February 02, 2013 at 11:20 AM

definition of domination in a fight right here.

Posted by phaqueue on February 02, 2013 at 12:51 PM

Definitely a great fight, sucks they got duped by the linesman and got the game misconduct

Posted by BloodyChiclets on February 04, 2013 at 10:08 AM

If you have eyes, you have Rinaldo winning this one.

Posted by samtheman on February 02, 2013 at 07:17 AM

Rinaldo wins with some big punches to the head. Looked like he could've broken his hand with a shot to the helmet. I really like his answer in the post game interview when asked what he would do differently since he got a game misconduct for going before the puck dropped. He just said "throw harder".

Posted by mcb798 on February 02, 2013 at 10:42 AM

if anyone deserves an elbow to the face.....it is simmonds......i congratulate erskine because how many times did simmonds do this to other guys? its about time he gets a dose of his own medicine.......i wish this would happen to a flyer in every single game......it could not have happened to a better guy or a better team....this was well deserved....simmonds is one of the dirtiest players in the league that plays on the dirtiest team in the whole nhl.

Posted by Mounty in NC on February 02, 2013 at 10:03 AM

Leave it to one of the dirtiest players in the league, Rinaldo, to try to redeem his player for a questionable illegal hit. Rinaldo is a thug and refused to fight other big players, just the smaller non fighters he knows he can beat.

Posted by mudman55 on February 03, 2013 at 06:16 AM

I would have liked to have seen Erskine defend himself- he can really throw. Cheap hit- you can tell he was going to get beat, and felt he had to do something....

Posted by staceyb on February 01, 2013 at 10:29 PM

Five game suspension--minimum--for that idiot Erskine. You can see him looking up at Simmonds and the elbow instinctively came up. He was going for the head. I was watching the Blues-Red Wings game and the ref called a similar head shot major on Backes that led to the winning goal. Only problem--there was no head shot. The ref blew the call and cost the Blues the game. These refs suck! Good for Rinaldo to pound Hendricks.

Posted by SrqWingNut on February 01, 2013 at 10:35 PM

Well, if Erskines' wallet isn't lighter and he doesn't get a game or two vacation something's wrong. Cheap shot. Karma is a bitch either way.

Posted by FHgrad99 on February 02, 2013 at 03:30 AM

These two guys were a little too eager to go at it. Rinaldo was all over Hendricks in this one. Rinaldo with the beat down on Hendricks. Clear win here.

Posted by chad420 on February 02, 2013 at 09:50 AM

Allday Zac Morris....Jimi Hendrix was not Saved by the Bell

Posted by Shoeman72 on February 02, 2013 at 02:04 AM

I respect Rinaldo for honoring the code with that beat down. The ref [email protected]%#ed up on the call so it was put in the players hands and he stepped up.

Posted by devsfan87 on February 03, 2013 at 09:29 PM

Rinaldo is the scum of the earth. He does not belong in the NHL..His place is in the LNAH up in Quebec. The guy can't play hockey on a frozen river. Side not. This is not the first nor the last time Wayne Simmonds gets shivered. He is a cheap shot artist and a big mouth.

Posted by Gustis on February 24, 2013 at 05:45 PM

Clear Rinaldo domination. To the mindless Flyers haters complaining how they didn't go after Erskine, did you not notice the part where Luke Schenn is being escorted away from Erskine and how Erskine leaves the ice?

Posted by rushfan3 on February 02, 2013 at 10:03 PM

Hendrix you DOPE. NEVER Take on Rinny!! KO to Zac; KO to the NHL Player Safety commission on Erskine.

Posted by joshlsmith on February 01, 2013 at 09:26 PM

Great time for a fight after the unpenalized elbow to Simmonds. Rinaldo does his job and takes the win

Posted by Toughguy83 on February 02, 2013 at 12:42 PM

Always good when a flyer gets hurt especially Simmons

Posted by bearcat99 on March 11, 2013 at 06:48 PM

Philly has no one who could take on erskine except maybe shelly whos out. erskine is a tough dude he's put some of the best down including milan lucic. however rinaldo is no joke after taking on shawn thornton and takin his licking

Posted by kkdowning on February 02, 2013 at 10:33 AM

The Flyer fans should stop complaining about Erskine -- while that was a bad fore-arm shiver, he is not a dirty player. Rinaldo punishes Hendricks -- who can't fight.

Posted by Madhouse27 on February 01, 2013 at 09:35 PM

Rinaldo has seen enough and goes after John Erskine...no wait a minute, that's Matt Hendricks. Anyway, win for Rinaldo.

Posted by LouCat40 on February 02, 2013 at 04:52 PM

Rinaldo hit him with everything, including a few rabbit punches. Absolute beating. And Erskine knew exactly what he was doing.

Posted by blackngold on February 02, 2013 at 01:25 PM

I hope Erskine is happy with the result of that totally cheap and uncalled-for hit. He owes Hendricks an apology.

Posted by KO22 on February 01, 2013 at 10:43 PM

First of all, Erskine is a low life, he had a play in their last game that should have been met with immediate repercussions. Second, good for Zac for sending a message, albeit against the fifth worst fighter in pro hockey. Message received, hopefully Sestito and/or Shelley dress for the next game vs the Crapitals.

Posted by wannago_letsgo on February 02, 2013 at 02:24 AM

where did they dig up these announcers? Good christ. You know the more I watch erskine the more i realize he really is a dirty cunt, not dirty like pronger dirty where he's just miserable to play against, just plain cheap dirty, the worst kind, like ryan hollweg dirty. Anyway, Rinaldo all the way, too bad Hendricks had to pay for foreskin's garbage play.

Posted by grocerystick on February 02, 2013 at 02:38 AM

The hit was a thing of beauty! Dirty? Yeah, but Simmonds had it coming for the dirty crap he has gotten away with. The fight itself? Good for Rinaldo; The angry midget beat up the biggest speed bag in the league...

Posted by Doogle on February 02, 2013 at 01:30 AM

The Cryers are one of the biggest cheap shot teams in the league. Karma will bite you every time. Always nice to see a Cryer go down. Reinaldo throws a lot of punches but hits the back of Hendricks helmet and his back. Rinaldo doesn't land anything lol The flyers got to try and win something since they can't win games. Draw

Posted by Caps44 on February 01, 2013 at 10:00 PM

stupid fight for both. Rinaldo clearly the instigator, at least in the video. Rinaldo wins SOLELY because a crappy player takes out a decent player (for you Flyers fans: how many minutes does Rinaldo play vs Henricks?) Clear loser: lineman -- but their play never earns them penalties publicly.
