Now if you want to argue that Enroth moved into his path, maybe.

But, Cole shouldn't have been skating through the crease in the first place.
Almost every Habs fan, including me, would agree that Cole was dumb to get that close. It was a terrible time to get penalized, but he deserved it. As to 'intent', this is where each fan base brings their own bias to the equation. However, just looking at Cole -- and not into his psyche -- you can see that contact was no more than his leg or skate brushing against Enroth as he passed. In other words, very little 'intent' of anything. More a physical mistake than a mental motive, I'd guess.
