In that case, Sedin was lucky that the stick went right though. In other visor setups, there's a good chance that the blade would be stopped right at eye level, and the guy would jerk his stick around trying to get it out before he realizes what he's doing. Guess what that would do to your eyeballs.
I hope Kopitar got a high sticking penalty for that. That's the most black and white I have ever seen.
Seriously, Sedin is pretty lucky he didn't get seriously hurt in that deal.
