Simmonds ran his head into Malkin's elbow. Not the other way around.
If Wayne skates with his head up, nothing happens. The puck had just left Simmonds a fraction of a second earlier.
Maybe it's just homer talk, but I don't really see Malkin's fault here. There was nothing he could have done, unless he wanted to stop, turn, and skate the other way, hence giving Simmonds a skating lane and a shot at the puck.
