Two key fights from last night’s Flyers-Sabres game, the details of which can be found here.

The first was between Zac Rinaldo and Corey Tropp…

Didn’t go so well for the young Flyer, but it didn’t hurt his team, who owned the second period after scoring to close out the first, just before this scrap.

Marc-Andre Bourdon tangled with Matt Ellis in the second after Ellis took exception to a boarding by Bourdon on Nathan Gerbe. Pretty solid melee here:


Ellis would pick up the instigator penalty, negating what would have been a Sabres power play. The Flyers scored not long after, so the bullet was dodged, but Bourdon could still hear from the league.
