Rinaldo didn't land a single punch. His knuckles must be pretty sore right now, that helmet is pretty hard.

Not a single person can defend that chicken**** elbow.

Disgusting.

Not even suspension talk, no call on the play proves how incompetent these officials are. That was as obvious and blatant f a headshot you could throw, yet no call. Wow.

He was definitely disoriented, and not suspendable??? I'm beginning to think you're not even watching this game, that's about as clear cut a suspension as there is, even Caps fans are agreeing

I love how this is somehow turning into a Rinaldo bashing topic.

So yeah I'm thinking suspension.

It doesn't matter if a player is knocked out or not. They can still suffer a serious injury from such a cheapshot. He'll probably be out with a concussion. The NHL is trying to crack down on headshots. Do you not get it?

Clear headshot. I'm assuming a suspension or fine will be coming. That was a bad hit to the head.

Watched the replay like 4 times, there's two Refs looking right at the play too and Erskine is looking at Simmonds right in his eye

As a Caps fan, I think it deserves an suspension. Too bad, because he's been playing relatively well.

2 refs and 2 lineman disagree ! That was as blatant of a major penalty as there is.

I usually like to play devils advocate and argue for the defender, but that was a pretty intentional looking elbow to me

Is there even a double minor for an elbowing?

Should have been a major.

Will be a multiple game suspension

Rinaldo is 5'11 and Hendrick is 6'0...


3-4 games suspension coming.

Yep. Could be 20 games, could be a Congressional Medal of Honor. Spin the wheel, Shanny.

I haven't seen the hit yet, so I can't comment on that, but it seems almost everyone agrees with this.

But I can think of one person who will almost definitely defend it.

No, there isn't. My mistake. Should've been a major and a game misconduct since he bloodied him up.

Yeah, and Rinaldo wins 19 out of 20 anyway. Hendricks can't throw at all.

I would have no problem giving him anywhere from 2-10 games for that... Way more blatant than most checks to the head.... Sticks his elbow out right in his face... What a tough guy play there..

His head wasn't down and he shouldn't have to expect an Elbow to his nose.
