Rinaldo could of got charging because jumps to hit horton before lucic gets him. The fight was pretty lame. Rinaldo hits with an overhand slap which connects lol.... I dont think there was one decent punch. Horton fell down twice but it was not because of being punched....

Posted by tony1127 on December 17, 2011 at 05:10 PM

did rinaldo land anything? give this one a draw. it looks like rinaldo won, but if you actually pay attention to whats going on, you see that almost every single one of his punches misses.

Posted by diehardbruins on December 17, 2011 at 06:19 PM

I like to be a homer , but are some of you idiots serious? Did Rinaldo land a punch that hurt? I used to hate the habs the most, but there is nothing better than BEATING philly. You can all choke on the 7 rings our our teams have won in the last 10 years!! HAHAHAHA!! PHILLY SUCKS!!!

Posted by THRASHIN on December 17, 2011 at 04:11 PM

Rinaldo had better footing throughout the fight. Horton was extra sloppy. Neither landed any direct/injuring shots. Watch where the punches land, they either landed in the air or against the shoulder/upper back. Anyone who says Rinaldo won needs to remember that in order to "win" a fight, you have to noticeably dominate and INJURE the opponent. Horton pretty much made himself look bad by slipping and tripping over himself.

Posted by 777Big on December 19, 2011 at 12:14 AM

Rinaldo (5 pts) is only good for penalty minutes and getting his a** kicked. So he finally has a fight in which he doesn't embarrassed, then he cheers like a little girl (as Philly is getting destroyed). What a joke. Send him down.

Posted by DIRTYWATAH on December 17, 2011 at 04:24 PM

Rinaldo is a joke. He hasn't won a fight all year and picks a fight with Hornton at the end of his shift.

Posted by Skipmeok on December 17, 2011 at 05:56 PM

Rinaldo...why didn't he go after the guy that hit him?!?! Just goes to prove...Philly Fag's do it again... Wayne Simmons is looking to get killed...but then, who'd miss him anyways?!?!

Posted by jeagle12212012 on December 17, 2011 at 10:20 PM

Both got in good hits I say it's a draw

Posted by slainte12 on December 19, 2011 at 01:43 PM

Horton, stop fighting!!! Last year, pre-concussion it was fine, but this year DON'T do it. You had been able to avoid the temptation before so I have no idea why this time you couldn't stay out of a blowout where it was completely unnecessary. We need you on the ice, not watching!

Posted by mmadced on December 19, 2011 at 08:49 PM

You morons on this sight don't realize that the hit by looch was clean if that hack rinaldo does'nt squarethe boards. There''s too much of the dumb play by these dumb players not understanding you don't turn into the boards

Lets go bruins

Posted by paddyd on December 18, 2011 at 10:52 AM

Zac is learning to be a little more particular who he drops gloves against. His "W" colum is a bit lean but after watching a rag doll effort by both I would have to give a slight edge to Rinaldo.

Posted by BigBadBruin22 on December 18, 2011 at 04:29 AM

First off, win Rinaldo. No problem saying that. Three points: First, Rinaldo had a chance to fight Lucic, Thornton or McQuaid in this game and he chose HORTON. Hahaha. Lame! Second, zero of the B's top fighters even had to drop their gloves. See three names above! Third, the B's still faired well without any of their regular pugilists fighting or even getting challenged! Chara won, against a no talent goon who isn't much smaller. Boychuk/Hartnell tied up too much. Uneventful draw. And Rinaldo won. Thornton, Lucic and McQuaid can rest their knuckles to pound on another team that actually challenges them! It's good to be a Big Bad Bruin fan!! It's simple, the B's are steamrolling right now in the win column and in the toughness category.

Posted by BruinsBeatdown on December 17, 2011 at 04:27 PM

Rinaldo gets the win on a bigger Horton.

Posted by Custombreaks on December 17, 2011 at 04:51 PM

Oh hum. another gang swarm from the punks and without their "immunity ticket" Chippy Campbell on the bench. If Chippys old man Quirky Campbell was still calling the shots (actually he still is!), Rinaldo would get 4 games for punching Horton with his free arm. Nice to see O'Halloran's win streak continue, he sure knows how to kiss ass, after his fine performance in the playoffs he really deserves to have his name engraved on the tainted Cup along with all time Bruin favorites Sutherland, Walkom and O'Rourke.

Posted by jaspurr63 on December 17, 2011 at 04:51 PM

the fight reflects the score then he takes a ten min. misconduct then 2 min. minor way to help the team rinaldo... does he own the pasta sause co??

Posted by capsfloors on December 18, 2011 at 09:44 AM

WOW Rinaldo wins a fight...... thought he was going to go winless this year.... Hit from behind deserves a penalty but no suspension as Rinaldo was feeling good enough to scrap.... Oh and tpr1960 sucks!

Posted by jlmcgui on December 19, 2011 at 07:28 PM

Win for Rinaldo, even from a B's fan. But agree with prior posts: Who hit Rinaldo? Why fight Horton? Shelly challenges Chara ... and gets embarassed by Chara, who is "not the fighter" Shelley is. And then Hartnell, bee-lines for Marchand; why not take on someone in YOUR WEIGHT CLASS?. Hartnell is gutless, who will constant;y "bump into the goalie by ACCIDENT" ... then disappears when people come looking. As he did with Johnny Rocket once Boychuk was ready to "Spacek" him ... Paul Holmgrem must be embarassed, Shelley should be released by now; can't carry him AND Rinaldo.

Posted by moneybags on December 17, 2011 at 05:01 PM

Stupaldo won I guess,Hortons a non-fighter tho...then the idiot trys to get in a fight with another non-fighter and kills his team further by taking a stupid penalty cus he couldnt keep his fat mouth shut...he quietly stood away from Thornton,Lucic,Mcquaid,and Chara....IDIOT!

Posted by ageno20 on December 20, 2011 at 10:07 PM

Win goes to rinaldo. Horton not the best fighter but only lost because rinaldo's arm came out of his sleeve so he was able to throw em easier. Horton would kill this guy if they went again. Also noy many punches landed

Posted by Double Nickels on December 19, 2011 at 12:39 PM

I love Bruins fans--who gave this to Horton? LMFAO

Posted by BaustinBeatdown on December 18, 2011 at 02:51 PM

first scrap of the season for horty and i expect his next to be better as for rinaldo this was only bright spot for phillie in an otherwise disgraceful showing for the flyers i cant wait to see this on 24/7 shawn thornton had a bout 20 mins in this game because of obvious reasonsand had no takers in orange...

Posted by andrewplayer2 on December 17, 2011 at 04:29 PM

Nothing much of a fight, at least to me. I'm a huge bruins fan but Rinaldo has the edge.

Posted by blazers76 on December 18, 2011 at 06:43 PM

Win Rinaldo. Looked good after getting creamed from behimd.

Posted by Leafs2006 on December 18, 2011 at 11:14 AM

Whoever voted for Horton hears a Who, is awaiting concussion treatments. Typical LoochBiitch hit from behind, hunchback hit, starts the whole melee. Lets hope Horton has another concussion after last years hit by Rome. Coach " Shrek" must be so proud of his stanley cup team after this.

Posted by QUIGGS22 on December 17, 2011 at 04:45 PM

Good job by Rinaldo who gets the win.

Posted by Behn Wilson on December 17, 2011 at 09:39 PM

Rinaldo is like PJ Stock... without the fighting ability. Here, he outlasts, and outwits a lackadaisical Horton.

Posted by brianamoro on December 17, 2011 at 05:03 PM

Slight edge to Rinaldo, he took a run at Horton thats why Lucic buried him, the punk deserved it

Posted by shane0mack on December 17, 2011 at 04:51 PM

I have to give Rinaldo credit taking on the bigger Horton...AFTER he is crushed by Lucic. His punches may not have been effective but even if you credit shoulder glances as 1/4 of a punch, that's still more than Horton landed.

Posted by billy jack on December 17, 2011 at 11:35 PM

zac squeezed out a win,but he got lucky.but he will take it.

The Bruins do not like Rinaldo, that's for sure. W-Rinaldo.

Posted by hughcares on December 18, 2011 at 04:39 PM

Rinaldo pounds the puff ball Horton. Lucy doing what he does best - ram someone from behind - usually its Thornton he's ramming in the shower after the game while Chara videotapes it.

Posted by brymaster1 on December 17, 2011 at 04:16 PM

Posted by GSP09 on December 18, 2011 at 07:24 PM

HaHaHa!!! Bruins douchebag getting his h*** kicked by a guy 60 pds lighter. This nis so phony. And some jokers voted for the ugly Horton. Lucic is a chicken ,remember Laraque!!!!!

Posted by fernben8 on December 18, 2011 at 08:38 AM

Horton is a better fighter than this but Rinaldo had his number this time around... One of those fights for Horton when you just couldn't get going and everything you did was half a second off. Not sure if he got rattled earlier ? Rinaldo did a good job in maintaining his momentum and edge.

Posted by prence on December 17, 2011 at 05:09 PM

The leader in penalty minutes takes a run at Horton, gets bashed by Lucic for it, but then proceeds to get up and pound Horton AGAIN but this time with his fists. THEN he brags about it and waves his hands in the air like his team didn't just get their ass kicked 6-0.

Posted by mcb798 on December 18, 2011 at 12:41 PM

rinaldo kicked his ass.

Posted by kinga101 on December 17, 2011 at 07:34 PM

Rinaldo the clear winner in this one, handling the much bigger Horton rather easily with a busy right hand. Lucic didn't seem to want to go with Simmonds after the hit from behind. I think the refs felt obligated to hand out the major (and instigator to Boychuk) because of all the HBO cameras and 24/7 attention. Otherwise neither would have been called as usual.

Posted by TommyGun29 on December 18, 2011 at 07:55 AM

Not a bad rasslin' match...Rinaldo finally wins one. Wouldn't have wanted to see him get up from the hit all pissed off and have Darth Lucic still staning over him....would've been ugly. I was hoping Simmonds and Looch would get free. I'm a B's fan and a big Lucic fan but that hit was wrong and there's no need for that in the game.

Posted by Edit17 on December 18, 2011 at 07:38 PM

Rino with the win.

Posted by bloodonyourlips on December 18, 2011 at 01:37 PM

Win Zac. Yet again, another cheap shot by Lucic to add to his long list, would somebody please slap this overrated chump!

Posted by mudman55 on December 18, 2011 at 07:35 AM

Rinaldo with the clear W. And Lucic is such a goddamn moron....He takes the dumbest penalties.....And I'm a Bruins fan. Watch any game closely- you'll see Lucic pass to nobody, have passes clank off his stick, and he gets unnecessarily upset at harmless bumping. He is infuriating. And I wish Horton wouldn't fight...He's working on 3 career concussions...

Posted by BoardSlam on December 20, 2011 at 10:59 AM

Glad to see monkey face Horton get it handed to him.

Posted by Blackbeard101 on December 18, 2011 at 01:52 AM

Win for Rinaldo based on more punches thrown, more punches landed and the rag doll treatment he gave to Horton; definite hit from behind from the punk Lucic. This will be about a half dozen times for him to meet with the NHL brass, so all the Bruins fan whiners can't use that excuse like they did with McQuack. After several sucker punches, an obvious head shot to Ryan Miller and several big hits from behind, it is about time Lucic sits out a few games and coughs up a few bucks. We shall see if the Bruin immunity still persists after this one.

Posted by FightsOfHockey on December 17, 2011 at 05:02 PM

Rinaldo wins easy

Posted by Rbphoto1 on December 18, 2011 at 06:59 PM

Lucic really needs to be taught a lesson from the NHL, he is no doubly the cheapest player in the NHL. His hits are definitely suspension worthy.

Posted by nait on December 18, 2011 at 05:22 PM

i hate to admit this being a bruins fan but from what i saw rinaldo won even if he did have to hold horton down to stop the fight

Posted by Mark1967 on December 18, 2011 at 11:01 PM

Rinaldo picked himself up after the cheap shot check and gave Mr Horton a couple good punches. Would of like to see Simmonds and Lucic go.

Posted by DARCY T on December 18, 2011 at 03:35 PM

edge rinaldo and 6

Posted by canamrugby on December 18, 2011 at 11:30 PM

Horton should keep his gloves on if his fights are always going to go like this one.

Posted by mr hockey on December 20, 2011 at 11:13 PM

cheap shot Lucic your a pussy plain and simple your always hitting from behind and then saying " i thought it was a clean hit " you need your ass kicked ,don't worry it's coming puss boy ... win Rinaldo

Posted by pga5 on December 17, 2011 at 09:40 PM

All of you Bruins fans calling this a draw, check yourselves. Horton was hugging his legs at the end. If that's a draw, I'd hate to see what BruinsFan would call a clean loss. Probably something involving ambulances.

Posted by scorp1on on December 18, 2011 at 11:53 AM

Well at least the fans got some entertainment during the spanking. BBB - you aren't going to find any Flyer's fans who are happy with our team's toughness right now, so no need to gloat.

Posted by BooSanta on December 21, 2011 at 11:10 PM

The Zac attacked with another dirtbag hit from Lucic. Lucic could have fought his own battles but Horton heard the who here and wanted to be one of many claiming victory against this tenacious little termite in Rinaldo. Alas, The Zac attack wins it handily. draws the 5 minute major and his team never capitalized.

Posted by bruiser11 on December 18, 2011 at 12:52 AM

Posted by original61957 on December 17, 2011 at 06:10 PM

Rinaldo and a 5 . Another class move by Luchichi, hit from behind and become tough with two refs in between. Every time he backs down from a fight ,the excuse is because he's too talented to be taken off with a less talented opponent. (yeah right). If that was the case there would be zero fights. One of my favorite Lucic videos:

Posted by tocchetblue on December 18, 2011 at 09:00 AM

rinaldo cleans the ice with another bruin. easy win.

Posted by GreatMurray on December 18, 2011 at 08:33 AM

Rinaldo smokes this guy. He should have been after Lucic...he would have been in trouble with that. You have to know that Boston does not want Horton fighting. Philly played like chit but they get a smidge of credit for trying to match Boston's physical play...good luckj with that.

Posted by woolly mammoth on December 18, 2011 at 07:04 AM

Rinaldo gets the win. It's too bad that Lucic didnt' fight Simmonds, which proves how much of a pussy Lucic is once again. He'll selectively fight and primarily won't fight good fighters.

Posted by concrete447 on December 17, 2011 at 07:52 PM

ARE YOU KIDDING ME RINALDO DID NOT POUND HORTON?If Rinaldo a 4th liner takes out Horton!! You R an idiot!!! Horton was loofing for a gas station. Change out your Hubels or go for the laser surgery. Worse yet |Lucic has gone from the toughest Team Canada Captain to a pussy!!! Maybe he can get a trade to Buffalo. This is FIGHT page not a show up page, Horton is too good a hockey player to get tied up with Rinaldo. Rinaldo hands down, Chara scared Shelley; Shelley needs to let loose ande not try to out wrestle Chara, the Beast.

Posted by Puckmagnet on December 18, 2011 at 03:11 AM

Rinaldo all over Horton in this one. Rinaldo for the win.

Posted by cindycrosbysux on December 17, 2011 at 04:42 PM

Love that Rinaldo took a cheap shot from that scum Lucic and got back up to defend himself. Woulda loved to see him get ahold of Lucic tho. That would be a fight to see

Posted by johnkos on December 31, 2011 at 12:27 AM

Rinaldo may not be the biggest fighter but he he throws rapid fire punches, and fights like a pit bull. Rinaldo didn't like getting hit from behind. know it. I would have liked to see him go with Lucic. Although Simmonds / Lucic would have been a main event.

Posted by MaddieLynn on December 17, 2011 at 08:54 PM

The only good thing about this game was the fights. The announcer says, "Milan Lucic is a guy who certainly has flirted with suspensions many times in his career. Many people feel he should've been suspended at some time..." LOL This was a very good fight, entertaining. The fans were cheering. Rinaldo the clear winner.

Posted by hockeyrules999 on December 18, 2011 at 08:37 PM

Poor Horton...

Posted by cppalermo on December 20, 2011 at 04:36 PM

Horton got messed up and took the brunt of what Lucic should have been doing. Rinaldo is shaping up to be a decent fighter. Lucic is now a marked man in the league not just by the officials but by every other tough guy in the league.....he has it coming to him!

Posted by Makh2o on December 18, 2011 at 09:22 AM

Wish we had that douche of a bruin commentator working this one! Would have loved to hear the disappointment in his voice watching Horton get schooled by a smaller guy!

Horton 229lbs, Rinaldo 169lbs, Horton's such a chicken it's amazing. Hey Bruins, you'll have to move your team to midget if you want to challenge smaller guys !

Posted by Oil Can Henry on December 17, 2011 at 10:36 PM

...the hit by Lucic wasn't that bad,....certainly NOT a major - but, you KNOW damn-well the League's gonna' fine and suspend him. Hockey will be "cleaned-up" soon enough - Shanahan will see to that. No one's gonna' be hittin', anymore - no one's gonna' wanna' take the chance!

Posted by hockeyherman on December 18, 2011 at 10:27 PM

Good to see the Bruins finally get a taste of their own medicane! I love the Bruins style of hockey however it is also the reason why I hate them because they usually steam roll right over my Habs! Wish my Habs would take a page out of the Bruins/Flyers book and get bigger and tougher!

Posted by muskokadangler on December 17, 2011 at 09:24 PM

Posted by Rags4Life on December 18, 2011 at 12:51 AM

And this, for all you Lucic lovers, is why I despise the guy. I'm really starting to like this Rinaldo kid. Not the best fighter, but he's young and scrappy. Anyways, he get's the edge over pig face with the hot wife
