This is how I see it, as well. Didn't notice the skate to skate contact at first, and I was a bit surprised he fell so hard into the boards from what seemed to be a somewhat gentle (still reckless though) push.
Unbelievable he didn't get hurt on that play.. Of course, they are athletes in very good shape..if that was me, I'd probably still be hospitalized.
