it was a dirty hit, and was properlly penalized, but Stepan himself elevated it to a level that could have caused serious injury

in the interest of self-preservation, thats not a smart move to make. If he wanted to turn his back to him and face the boards to hold him off the puck that'd be one thing, but he ducked his head and shoulders cause he was trying to spin all the way back around and skate towards the corner which put him in a very vulnerable place

I agree on all parts.
