Agree. Kudos to the whoever posted the rulebook quote last night. Elbowing + injury to face or head = 5 + game automatic. Refs had no choice but i think it clearly wasnt intent to injure plus Horn doesnt have a rap sheet.
if the exact same elbow had been delivered, even inadvertently, by Tootoo, I have no doubt we'd be waving goodbye to him for 5 games or so...
