Zac Rinaldo continued to hit BJ Crombeen after already having KO'd him. Has he intentionally "broken the code" here or was this simply him not realizing just how bad he'd already got Crombeen?

Personally, even if he wasn't concussed (which i don't believe has been confirmed) or even knocked out, once a guy is down, no more punches should be thrown.

I havn't seen a lot of Rinaldo but in a few instances i have seen him in a negative light and this is one of them, this is a clear breech in the code and I do think this was an itentional one, Rinaldo really looked like he wanted to hurt Combree much like Lecavalier really looked like he wanted to hurt Talbot in retalitation (wich is just as wrong) If he had been fighting Rinaldo i'd say go for it eye for an eye but just not poor Max Talbot's eye hahaha

The look on Rinaldo's face after the fight says it all, he was pissed and would've kept going if the refs didn't give him the old tapout.

In all fairness, it was one knee and he was in the middle of throwing the punches. I do agree there is a code and maybe he crossed the line, I feel I have seen way worse in the NHL in fights and crossing the line/breaking the code. This feels like a mild infraction.
