Video of the Spacek hit on Booth

Here's a look at the hit, which was totally clean and legal.

Right out the gate, a lot of Panthers fans and bloggers, and even the Canadian Press, were calling it an elbow/shoulder to the chin. It clearly is not.

I watched it numerous times and the impact is into the chest area. Booth's head snaps back from either the initial impact or managing to see it, while looking down, at the last minute.

I emailed both Dave Stubbs (Mtl Gazette) and Rick Moffat (CJAD), and both said there was no contact by Spacek to the head.

Sounds like Booth is ok and will apparently travel to Ottawa.
