Video: Chimera catches Flyers’ Gostisbehere with butt-end of the stick


Maybe Jason Chimera was trying to be subtle. But with video replay, not much gets overlooked.

The veteran Washington Capitals forward got away with poking Philadelphia Flyers rookie defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere with the butt-end of his stick to the midsection during a stoppage in play in the second period of Wednesday’s game.

There was no call on the play. Gostisbehere went down, got back up and had some choice words for Chimera.
