It wasn't a cross-check, imho. Cheechoo and Zuccarello were racing for the puck,
Zuccarello to try to negate an icing,
and Zuccarello just gave him a little shove. But it was enough to knock Cheechoo off balance and send flying into the end boards at high speed. Zuccarello got two minutes for boarding on the play. If Cheechoo hadn't been hurt I'm not sure Zuccarello would have been suspended.
Edit: Just watched it again, and Zuccarello wasn't trying to negate an icing -- it was at the opposite end of the ice. He was racing back on the backcheck to prevent Cheechoo from getting a scoring chance.
