And I agree with you; Ward's crosscheck was just as ugly as Tkachuk's (uglier actually). Deliberately from behind to the neck/head area after the whistle. That and the stuff with Davison is supposedly why the Blues employ Reed Low. Makes one wonder whether he's ever going to take up that role any more.
After watching davison fight Mayers, he would be nuts to fight Low. If Low Jumped him like he did Boughner he probably would have gotten suspended too at least tossed and if the Sharks would have won the game because of the PP people would have been all over him like a cheap suit. the rules today prevent Low and other enforcers from dispensing frontier justice or whatever you want to call it. The NHL need to modify or better yet get rid of the Instigator rule.
