If you are going to talk about slashing instead of high-sticking, the fact that the stick made contact with his face as opposed to, for instance, his arm goes out the window. So then you have to look at the speed with which his stick contacted MSL and I personally don't think that should constitute slashing. If it did, there would be slashing penalties all night.

In fact, I think it's questionable as to whether he even swung his stick as opposed to his stick coming around as a consequence of his body rotating.

Sucks that MSL was injured but I don't see how a penalty can be called on that play. Definitely not high-sticking and very marginal in terms of a slashing call.
