Ottawa Senators v Philadelphia Flyers

Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson takes exception to a Zac Rinaldo hit on Chris Phillips by cross-checking the forward in the face late in the third period of today’s game against the Flyers. On the play, he received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for his actions.

Alfredsson, like Harry Zolnierczyk earlier in the game, may be hearing from Brendan Shanahan on Sunday.

  4. I don’t have a problem with this. Alfie won’t be suspended. And Rinaldo is a dipshit.

  5. Nothing like Alfie the Clown doing dirty shit again. The guy is nothing more then a classless cheap shot artist.

    • Eat shit! Praise Alfie!

    • Classic leaf fan response but alfie has only been suspended twice in 11 years. Such a rebel he is worse then Avery, donald brashear, and marty mcsorley. If your team were going through injuries like the sens are and see a cheap shot like Rinaldo did I am sure you would expect the captain or someone else to answer. This is what is wrong with the NHL now. The game needs to go back to the way it was in the 90s where the players policed the game. injure someone or cheap shot someone you answer to a tough guy with a face pounding or nice big hit. The Score calling alfie a goon is way off i am sure they are trying to be smart asses but common

    • yup- the only losers that think alfredsson is a god are the putz’s that live in this shithole town., he is without doubt one of the dirtiest stick abusers in the league. granted he is also the heart and soul of the team, but that does not excuse his constant use if the stick and the willing oversight of this by sens loser fans.
      then again, according to sens fans, neil has never hit anyone from behind after the whistle or face washed a rookie after the whistle either, he NEVER tries itwith a tough guy. matter of fact, he did not accept a single invite to scrap against the Leafs last week. he will not have it so easy tonight.

  6. dirty hit ,gets a dirty cross check …….

  7. Nothing wrong with Rinaldo hit… Alfie cross checks him in the head? There is no valid argument there. Alfie should be suspended.. Period. Turtles? lol

  8. Deliberately taking a stick to an opponent’s head, whoever you are and whoever they are and whatever they’ve done, is suspension-worthy.
