Zac Rinaldo put an absolute beating on Tampa Bay Lightning's B.J. Crombeen in the first period on Tuesday night. Rinaldo landed a direct blow to the face that left Crombeen wobbley, then he landed a couple more. It was brutal. Crombeen was taken to the locker room but apparently he's okay and will return to action tonight.
UPDATE: Crombeen will actually not return to the game as a precautionary measure, per announcement by the team.
Rinaldo on fighting: "It's just hockey. Fights happen and I am not afraid to answer the bell."
