Tanguay stuck his arm out to hold up the puck mover, apparently not realizing said puck mover was about 6" shorter than him. Swap Stoner or Gilbert into Spurgeon's spot and it's just a typical bump behind the net.
Exactly, he was clearly shocked that it was someone's head there, and not the chest. Unfortunate incident. Fine at the most.
