Even if Bartulis had seen him coming (and you can see he's turning to luck up just as Upshall comes in), he's standing completely still and someone is bearing down on him at close to full speed. He's getting trucked there regardless.

Agree to disagree, I guess - as usual with you.
If he's in a position to take on a guy coming, he doesn't get propelled into the boards like he was shot out of a cannon.

And I've never disputed that it was a penalty.... but it was a 2 min penalty with a bad result. Just like Downie's was a double-minor, maybe a major with a bad result.
