Last night, Zac Rinaldo laid a hard and arguably dirty hit on Sean Couturier.
I hate hits like Rinaldo's. Serve no hockey purpose and malicious.— Justin Bourne (@jtbourne) October 22, 2015
Most of us assumed suspension, but today the Department of Player Safety informed the Bruins that they are stuck with Zac Rinaldo as soon as tomorrow, per Renaud Lavoie:
No suspension for #bruins Zac Rinaldo. Skates are not leaving the ice and the head was not the point of contact. #tvasports— Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) October 22, 2015
I guess that sorta makes sense. What do you think?
Don't trust the Quebecois!
Correction here. NHL didn't made a final decision on #bruins Zac Rinaldo.— Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) October 22, 2015
