Clearly Weber was pissed, but Z was making a run in the dying seconds of a game when the game was all but won. Z went in with the intent to hurt Weber and Weber retaliated with some hurting of his own.

In a physical game of this magnitude, tempers will flare. I'd drop a $10,000 fine on Weber and say "You do anything out of line again and it'll be a suspension"
Are you kidding me? You call that boarding? Wow, just... Wow! I'm not trying to start any trouble on your board, but stop being such a homer and looking for justification of what Weber did. At least, there are some fans on here who are level-headed enough to realize what their captain did was wrong.
