"Dirty" is defined by the rules.

The rules say you can't hit a player who doesn't have the puck,

Doughty didn't have the puck.

Its black and white.

in fact there's a case to be made that Drew initiated the movement toward the collision.
No, there isn't. Doughty was watching the puck. Cole was watching Doughty.

Does Doughty need to keep his head up? Yes, he should. That hasn't nothing to do with the fact that Cole targeted him and went after him long after Doughty had gotten rid of the puck.
