Getting a finger in the eye could certainly be accidental, but pulling at an eye would not be. Moen's changing tune leads me to believe he embellished his original claim.
How in the **** is Moen not getting a game suspension.

This is what Moen did:
47.2 Aggressor – The aggressor in an altercation shall be the player (or
goalkeeper) who continues to throw punches in an attempt to inflict
punishment on his opponent who is in a defenseless position or who
is an unwilling combatant.
A player (or goalkeeper) must be deemed the aggressor when he
has clearly won the fight but he continues throwing and landing
punches in a further attempt to inflict punishment and/or injury on his
opponent who is no longer in a position to defend himself.
A player or goalkeeper who is deemed to be the aggressor of an
altercation shall be assessed a major penalty for fighting and a game
misconduct.
A player or goalkeeper who is deemed to be the aggressor of an
altercation will have this recorded as an aggressor of an altercation for
statistical and suspension purposes.
A player or goalkeeper who is deemed to be both the instigator
and aggressor of an altercation shall be assessed an instigating minor
penalty, a major penalty for fighting, a ten-minute misconduct
(instigator) and a game misconduct penalty (aggressor).

Even more

Quote:
47.9 Fighting Other Than During the Periods of the Game - Any teams
whose players or goalkeepers become involved in an altercation,
other than during the periods of the game, shall be fined pursuant to

imposed upon the participating players or goalkeepers by

Players involved in fighting other than during the periods of the

Should one player be deemed the instigator of the fight, the game
misconduct shall not be assessed to his opponent.
Any player or goalkeeper who would be deemed to be an
instigator pursuant to this rule at a time other than during the periods
of the game shall be suspended pursuant to 47.20.

altercation is commenced after the period or game has terminated.
Should players come onto the ice from their players’ benches after
the period ends and prior to the start of an altercation, they shall not
be penalized if they remain in the vicinity of their players’ bench and
provided they do not get involved in any altercations.
