Basically Prust should have got 6 minutes for taking a left cross to the jaw for no reason. I guess thats what I get for going to the main board.
They had Kerry Fraser on TSN, and he agreed with the no suspension. I haven't seen the replay in slow motion, but he indicated that Prust's jaw went towards the punch (which is pretty much impossible in a real punch), so he felt Prust sold it pretty well.
Still doesn't take away from the fact that it was a sucker punch though.
