Check of the Game: Andrej the Giant Takes Out Chimera, or Gx Slams Semin?

One stat that illustrates the energy the Flyers had despite coming up short coming up short last night, they outhit the Capitals 29-17. Here are two of the finer hits we've seen in a while… 

Both checks came at a critical juncture of the third period, with the Flyers showing that they had every intention of winning the game or leaving no doubt they'd given all their effort. First, Andrej Meszaros lights up Jason Chimera with the Flyers down a goal:

Next, a few minutes later, with the game tied, here's Claude Giroux doing work in his own end. 

Just being honest here… I don't know how Giroux escaped a penalty on that one. Now if only the kid could score… 

Which one has your vote for best hit of the night?
