    See, I thought that too at first. But the more I look at the replay, the more I don’t think he did. He definitely leaned into the hit – which, considering Hamhuis’ vulnerable position, is what makes it a penalty – but I don’t think his feet left the ice until after contact was made.

    Turn the tables. If it was Kesler doing that to Fowler, would you be calling for a penalty or simply believing he finished his check? Tough call, this one is right on the line but I think within the rules.

    Anytime you drive an opponents face into the glass it is NOT a clean hit! Hamhuis was in a bad position and Getzlaf failed to let up on the hit. You can blame Hamhuis for being in that position, but like head shots, the responsibility should be with the one delivering the check. Maybe that puck to the head of Getzlaf clouded his judgement, but it in the very least deserved a boarding call.
