For whatever reason the Thrashers were not on their game and they didn't take it to the Kings physically. It wasn't that the Thrashers were intimidated by Brennan's presence or Avery's cheap shot. It's more likely they were reeling after the first two goals on only 4 shots.
Personally I disagree with the call. Hartnell of the Preds didn't seem too affected by that slight push (excuse me... vicious board) by Avery the next shift. Good thing it wasn't Modano. 2 minutes would have suficed in my opinion. Why should a push into the boards be any worse than a check? You can check a guy at full speed and get a two minute boarding call. Hartnell embellished that one a bit.
