Other Penalties: Chimera received a roughing.
Ronaldo is a piece of shit and deserved that
Chimera with a KO. Rinaldo started this with a flying elbow and he had every chance to get his gloves off.
Rinaldo has been around the block more than a few times. Deliver a cheap shot and you better get your gloves off and protect yourself. Nice uppercut and a KD win for Chimera.
This was a fight? I guess Chimera wins because he landed a sucker punch... I have to say, though, I love Rinaldo's reaction to the ref telling him he got a fighting major: "I got five? For what??"- pretty much sums this one up
Rinaldo needs to clean up his act, maybe then other players will respect enough to let him get his gloves off. Until then he deserves this and as many more as the players of the league can throw his way.
So people are complaining about Chimera's cheap shot but fail to see that Rinaldo failed on his elbow to the head of Green. Once you try that, you had better be ready for someone to engage you. I give an F to Rinaldo for being an idiot for not knowing this. That is a legit KO for Chimera. I never thought I would write that.
The refs allowed the Karmic wheel to roll over Rinaldo -- that and a short right from Chimera
5.6% Rinaldo?? What the heck were YOU watching?
Not even a fight, if it is, Chimera gets the win for throwing the only punch. I'm torn here, because I really think Rinaldo deserved this, but at the same time, I'm not a huge fan of someone punching another player who has absolutely no intention of fighting, even if they're someone like Rinaldo.
Hard to feel bad for Rinaldo. I think he deserves this. He should have dropped his gloves right away and fought, he didn't oh well. Win Chimera, but this isn't a fight, it was... I am not sure. Lets not talk about any "code" being broke, there is no code, never has and never will be. Every single fighter, even the so called "honorable" ones have freak outs, it happens to the best. Not that Chimera is a fighter by any means.
You should probably drop your gloves next time you try to elbow someone.. Glad chimera didn't care.. Got to get rinaldo out of hockey
beautiful upper cut. Rinaldo tried to take the other guys head off with a high elbow. Good for chimera not to wait for rinaldo to do it again. rinaldo didn't drop his gloves but he had it coming.
Nighty night Rinaldo.
This was not a fight, but a sucker punch from Chimera.
In the words of Ross the boss Rhea, "That was a dirty shot Doug."
I am a flyers fan and don't understand how anyone could have voted for Rinaldo. He never even had his gloves off but still received a fighting major. Should have been a longer PP for the flyers. With that being said the homers here that voted for a guy that never threw a punch should get your eyes checked.
APPARENTLY ANYONE WHO VOTED FOR RINALDO OR EVEN FOR A DRAW HAD BETTER CHECK HAVE THEIR HEADS AND EYES EXAMINED AS THIS WAS A 1 PUNCH WIN...WHAT ARE YOU IDIOTS THINKING??
Wasn't much of a fight, but Rinaldo got a taste of his own medicine for his drive by actions and Chimmer wasn't taking it anymore. Though I don't believe he had the intent to quick punch Zac to drop him, it was an effective reminder that you can't just fly around the ice recklessly whenever you want and not have to atone for your actions. Summary: Zac got knocked the eff out
Rinaldo clearly went in with a flying elbow. This was karma for what he does on a regular basis. But notice Chimera kept Rinaldo's head from hitting the ice. Classy.
i dont know if rinaldo is hurt but it looked like rinaldo didnt wanna fight for whatever reason and probably thought chimera wouldnt force him to it and boom...chimera knocked him down with right uppercut a second after rinaldo let his guard down rinaldo shouldnt have received 5 minutes major veteran chimera fought at least once in each season since he played his 1st full season with edmonton in 02-03 except last season
Announcers are stupid. How's this even featured on this site? Don't think Rinaldo knew they were fighting.
Clyer fans crying about an injustice to Rinaldo. Pure comedy. Are Cryer fans really this delusional...or just plain stupid.
What the fu ck was Rinaldo thinking.First he tries to decapitate Green then turtles when Chimera comes after hin!He deserves having to take the free shot for being stupid!
Who could really vote for Rinaldo?
The one hit wonder fight. A beauty shot, and a win to Chimera as he very politely KO's Rinaldo. Not sure what the nutbag did, but to see him get stung like that, is a joy to watch. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
ba boom ...... down goes Rinaldo... By the way .. who voted for rinaldo??? he was dropped like a sack of potatoes...
Just your typical one punch uppercut ko- Winner Chimera
ko out go the lights chimmy with easy win
Rinaldo. Very close to the biggest woman in professional sport. How apt. Chimera wins. Rinaldo putting on an act, just like his brethren Ronaldo would.
I thoroughly enjoyed that
Rinaldo blocked that last punch with his jaw!
always hated rinaldo based solely on his lack of skill and gooniness. saw a quick replay of the uppercut on nbc and was like ahh yes he finally got knocked the fug out. So i check it out here and i am disappointed on how this unfolded. He wasn't even trying to fight chimera or even defend himself which is his mistake but it loses the thrill of the fight. Still happy ol goon got a shot to the grill piece
Rinaldo asked why he got 5 :o
Good for Chimera. Rinaldo should be bagging groceries by now.
That was a double minor for roughing at minimum or a fighting for Cimera ...nothing for Rinaldo who put his hands down and did the stand up turtle ..refs blew that one...Rinaldo got screwed on that one
Lost a lot of respect from Chimera on this one. Need a willing partner for fight. Broke the code. Rinaldo arguably best pound for pound fighter, would love to see an actual scrap between them.
TKO Win Chimera.
I don't like Zac Rinaldo all that much but this was complete crap, he had both gloves still on. Rinaldo isn't afraid of many guys and he's not afraid of Chimera. I'm not buying a 'missed elbow'. It was a missed check on a much bigger guy than him - naturally his arm might appear to come up on the follow through... watch the replay in slow motion subjectively and imagine it's not Zac Rinaldo. That said, I called it a TKO because both guys got 5 minutes and that's what happened (this is not a KO) and gave Chimera the obvious W with a 5 rating.
LOL, Rinaldo got some votes. Probably from Boldbilly. ha. I put Zac in the same category as Carcillo and Avery.
At what point will the Flyers realize Rinaldo sucks as a hockey player and is a waste of a roster spot? Maybe after this video of him missing a flying elbow to the head check, and then getting one-punched and dropped by Chimera.
Haha Rinaldo gets dropped and gets a five minute major for getting dropped... Love it! I'm not sure why everyone is so concerned about the penalties here...? Aren't we on this sight to see the fighting and not to make sure the refs are awarding the right team a power play afterwards...?
How can anyone vote for Rinaldo? His brain was scrambled after that, I'm surprised he got up. Nice shot Chimera!!!
One of life's simple pleasures is watching a gutter rat like Zach Rinaldo get punched in the face ... life is good
Rinaldo throws a dirty elbow. He whiffs...Chimera doesn't....this is what should be happening all over the NHL. Screw Bettman! Screw NBC! Screw all the lefties that moan "Oh My" whenever the big boys go to work. They all need to go sit in their closets to hide from the boogey man when a hockey game is being played. They could play with their.....................................teddy bears. Chimera gets a 6 for being THE MAN...the fight gets a 4 because Rinaldo does his puzzy routine as soon as Chimera pops him once.
Nice uppercut by Chimera to a well deserving but, ever fun Zac Rinaldo Imagine if he wouldve connected with that hit. Chimera & 3
stealthy uppercut folds Rinaldo like an envelope... chirp in the box all you want kid, but you're getting the post-game evaluation from the Dr. like it or not... #25 FTW.
One and done.
Cheap shot gets laid on a cheap shot artist. Oh the irony.
I am not a Rinaldo fan, but he didn't exactly earn 5 for that....In fact, : Linesman: Zac, get in there - you got five. Rinaldo: I got five? For what? Linesman: The court of public opinion has determined that, even though you didn't really do anything, you are the type of person who WOULD do something, so, in the interest of keeping the masses fat and complacent (it's an election year, after all), it would be best for everyone if you got in the box. Consider it a civic appeasement. Rinaldo: Sheesh. I believe the system needs an overhaul.
He's going to be getting knocked out until he's out of the league. No respect for the sport, just reckless... Good job Chimmy. The best part was 1:29 when Wilson was talking smack and Chimera was just grinning hahaha
I'm gonna give it a K.O Rinaldo is human garbage
Cheap sucker punch by Chimera.
Nice right hand by Chimera
Total bs you have to agree that if the situation is reversed rinaldo gets 2,5 and 10 and probably suspension I hate the double standard in this league. Not even a fight rinaldo has no reason to fight at this point in the game his team is winning. I give it a draw because no fight took place.
Wasn't even a fight!! Rinaldo never had his gloves off! This should of been 2, 5, and 10 for Chimera!!
Brutal uppercut. Not much question here.
I love how all the parrots are chanting "flying elbow" because its what the clueless analyst said. Rinaldo's elbow didn't come up until after he missed Green. Chimera threw a dirty uppercut in what shouldn't even be categorized as a fight. Rinaldo is right in saying that if it were him, he would have been suspended. Double standards in this league are ridiculous.
Chimaera with a cheap shot that started the skiffle. Chimera dropped Rinsldo with an uppercut before Rinaldo got his gloves off. Win for Chimera.
Actual hockey player (Chimera) beats useless embarrassment to the NHL plug who isn't even good enough for spot 4th line duty (Rinaldo) is always good.
That was the cheapest punch ive ever seen. Rinaldo didnt throw his gloves off. And btw, his elbow didnt come up until he passed Green. Thats typical considering he would have smashed his head on the boards if he didnt put his elbow up. The 1 time Rinaldo denies a fight and tries to restrain himself not only does he get sucker punched, but he gets penalized. I hate Zach Rinaldo. I think hes a worthless goon and the Flyers would be better off without him. But this is just awful. I cant stand to watch any player who denies a fight, even the players I hate, get snuk while their arms are at their side. The fact that Rinaldo got a fighting major drives me crazy. Those weekend refs were awful for both the Nashville and Washington game. They gave Chris Vandevele 2 mins for getting hit in the back. If that was anyone but Zach Rinaldo this website would be full of angry fans looking for a suspension. A players history does not matter when he gets sucker punched. And chris letang flopped so hard when Rinaldo hit him. Dustin Byfuglein hit Claude Giroux 4 times harder and 5 inches higher than Rinaldo hit Letang like 2 weeks earlier and there wasnt even a penalty. Giroux just laid on the ice until he realized that if he didnt get up the Jets were going to score. NHL officiating is the worst ive ever seen it. Players are getting away with horrible breaches of player safety and getting penalized for almost nothing. For the first time in my life a few weeks ago I saw a player (Crysby) go to the box, then leave it. It was a bad call on the ice but you CANNOT REVERSE A CALL. No other player would have gotten the privilege of having a call reversed. I see bad calls all the time that dont get reversed. If a ref can iust look at the jumbotron and see what an idiot he is to reverse a call most penalties would be reverse.
"I get 5 min?!? For what?!?" I agree. Chimera should have gotten 5 for fighting, 2 for instigating, 2 for a crosscheck. Green should have got 2 for crosschecking and 2 for hitting from behind. Rinaldo should have got 2 for roughing, for the head hunting missed hit
Thanks Chimera. That was fun to watch.
Chimera - five minutes for fighting Rinaldo - five minutes for receiving The linesmen - a game misconduct for complete and utter inefficiency The ever eloquent KKDowning nails it
Welcome back from suspension Rinaldo ... then he tries to throw a flying elbow at M.Green, and Chimera 1-punches him. No wonder the Flyers are OUT of the playoff picture at this time.
This wasn't even a fight. Chimera took a cheap shot to Rinaldo who had no intention of fighting. Whether or not Rinaldo is a piece of shit (he is) should have nothing to do with it. I also see no flying elbow like others are claiming, is there a better replay showing that?
not really a fight when one person drops the gloves and sucker punches the other person knowing they haven't dropped them
yup another boring flyers fight , at least phantoms are keeping flyer tradition alive, boring game crowd wasnt into it
The cheap shot punk is plowed by a 35 year old!
Rinaldo got what he deserved....
What a joke...Rinaldo had his gloves on and was sent to the box for fighting....who was he fighting??
How funny. If it was the other way around everyone would be bitching at Rinaldo for how much a cheap ass he was. Well, bitches?? Was that not a cheap ass shot? Are the refs blind for calling Rinaldo for a fighting major? And on the NBC broadcast is Anson Carter blind for not noticing he didn't drop his gloves? And finally, boy the Flyers have become pussified. No retaliation!
night night zac.
Keeping w/ the tradition of the horrible & totally bias & B.S.voting on this site I'm giving the win to Rinaldo !
that was bullshit, Rinaldo had both gloves on and wasnt fighting and gets clocked to the jaw
