When I watch the video, I see Cole turn to follow the puck, realize that Doughty is there, and reposition his upper body so that he doesn't get trucked. Can't blame the guy for trying to protect himself, it's unfortunate that Doughty didn't do the same and ended up taking the worst of the collision.
Here's a good example of another play where this happened. No penalty was called:
That's a bad example Josh, as is this...
Coles hit on Doughty is somewhere inbetween, both in the sense of timing and intention.
