I watched the entire game, and the hit was indeed a penalty, yes perhaps dirty, but suspension worthy? Im not sure, but I dont think it is. Going by Neils past, hes chippy, but I cant think of any instances of him being really dirty, and suspensions are usually based on past experiences. There have been tons of instances of players being hit from behind, whether it was dirty or not, can be argued all day. From a kings stand point, the Avery-Kariya incident. Im sure many kings fans think it wasnt dirty, many preds fans think it was.
