Fight Video: Rinaldo knocks out Crombeen

Feb 5, 2013, 8:36 PM EDT

It didn’t take long for Philly tough guy Zac Rinaldo and Tampa Bay enforcer BJ Crombeen to find each other during Tuesday night’s Flyers-Lightning game — 6:19 into the first period, to be exact.

Crombeen, though, probably wishes he hadn’t found Rinaldo:

Not a pleasant scene, obviously, though it should be noted Crombeen is an experienced fighter — 69 career NHL tilts, according to Frank Seravalli of the Phiadelphia Daily News.

Crombeen left the contest and didn’t return for the remainder of the period.

Update: The Lightning have reported that Crombeen will return for the second period, a decision that’s probably going to raise some eyebrows about concussion protocol.

Update 2: According to Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune, the Lightning have reversed course and decided to hold Crombeen out for the remainder of the game as a precautionary measure.
