NEW YORK, N.Y. - Philadelphia Flyers centre Zac Rinaldo has been fined US$5,000 for two separate incidents drew during Saturday's game against the Devils.

Rinaldo was fined $2,500 for a late hit on Devils centre Jacob Josefson at 12:51 of the second period. Rinaldo received a minor penalty for interference.

Rinaldo also was fined the maximum $2,500 for his dangerous trip of Devils left wing Zach Parise after the whistle at 11:38 of the third period. No penalty was assessed on the play.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
