It was interference with unfortunate result, but the fault for the result lies mostly in whichever imbecile designed the boards (useless, dangerous construction? sure, why not!).
Interference is never an unfortune result, it's always intentional. Chara wasn't "finishing his check", he started his check when Pacioretty already got rid of the puck. Chara played all his career in Northeastern division and played more than enough games to know how boards are constructed. And he clearly directed Pacioretty's head with his hand. There is nothing unfortunal on this hit, besides th results.
