You don't usually (almost never) see a boarding call when a guy isn't facing the boards. And if you hit a guy at the bottom of the faceoff circle and he slides into the boards, is that boarding? He was easily farther away from the boards than any player I've ever seen be hit and get that call. But Upshall generated a lot of force with the hit because to me it looked like a charge. Maybe it could be called any of the three, but the only thing that matters is that it was an illegal hit.
