It wasn't so much that the hit was, say, Suter on Kariya style, or anything. It was more that tensions had been getting hot leading up to this point (begin/ green; perrault/thornton) and Begin was playing like our best forward all night.

What Thornton did was charge Begin from behind (sort of) and elbowed his face into the lower glass. He clearly meant it to be a hit of the punitive sort. I think he was probably over the line on this one and deserved the misconduct. Heck, maybe he should've even received a match, but I doubt it. I was just joking (sort of) above about Joe being suspended. Anyway, it was a dumb move by Thornton and one (had our pp not been pathetic) that could've easily cost his team the game.
