On the close up, it looked like it connected more with the shoulder area then the chest.

At any rate, whether the slash was weak or not, the action/intent will more then likely merit a game by the NHL. Maybe both will miss game 3. During a game, they would have been 2 mins each. The fact that it was after the buzzer, I think, will force the NHL to do something as they can't really let them get off "scott free" as that would be promoting that it's ok to do, on both counts.

Ribs should thank the NHL if they take him out of game 3. By game 4, I'm sure Detroit will have cooler heads. If it was anyone but the RedWings, I'm not sure Ribs would have survived getting mugged, by say, the Bruins or Flyers after the incident there.
