Video: Zac Rinaldo Takes Stick to Face

Watch the brutal stick-to-the-face Zac Rinaldo took from teammate Scott Hartnell in Sunday's win over the Pens.

My first thought after watching this video: whatever they shot into Zac Rinaldo’s lip must be frickin’ amazing because the Flyers’ brawler was in surprisingly good spirits when talking about the stick-to-the-face he took from teammate Scott Hartnell.

It was a bizarre play with Hartnell seemingly trying to come to Rinaldo’s aid after he was laid out pretty good, but while approaching the opposing Pens’ player, Hartnell either slipped or was thrown off his balance by being pushed a bit and WHACK. Brutal stick to the face. My lord, that must not have felt good.
