Video: Flyers’ Zolnierczyk ejected for kneeing Caps’ Perreault


With less than 30 seconds remaining in the Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-1 win against the Washington Capitals on Wednesday, Harry Zolnierczyk was given a five-minute major and game misconduct for kneeing Mathieu Perreault:

The good news is that it looks like Perreault is fine, at least early on.

The 25-year-old declined to comment on the hit but didn’t appear to limp after the contest, according to the Washington Post’s Katie Carrera.

Going a step further, Capitals head coach Adam Oates
puts the blame on Perreault:

Oates said he didn’t believe the hit was dirty, faulted Perreault for trying dipsy-doodle through the neutral zone.

We’ll see if the league decides to take an extra look at it.
