A very violent/hard hit that sent Kopitar flying dangerously into the boards, that's boarding even though it wasn't from behind. However, in terms of hit placement, it was more of a shoulder to shoulder hit with glancing head contact than a real headshot, so not dirty in that way. 100% right call by Richards to go after Morrow, even if the hit was totally clean (and I don't see it as totally clean, it was boarding), you don't let guys take major runs at your star player, you have to drop the gloves for that every time.

Hope Kopitar is indeed OK, just cause he's feeling decent 12 hours later doesn't necessarily mean he's out of the woods concussion wise, but hopefully he is.
