The Caps and Flyers have been super chippy with each other ever since Matt Niskanen‘s clean hit of Scott Laughton last month. Today, village idiot Zac Rinaldo tried to run Mike Green.

NBC analyst Anson Carter said Rinaldo tried to deliver a “flying elbow.” It also appears he nearly left his skates. Why is this guy even in the league? This is bush-league stuff. This is not hockey.
Jason Chimera said nuh uh.
Rinaldo, bloodied, was not happy.
Rinaldo drew an additional minor from the Caps, but, hey, you have to defend your skill players from crap like this. Chimera knows that.
