Asham should be gone. I doubt he actually meant to hit the guy in the throat, but his stick road up into that area on the follow through and you're responsible for that regardless of intent.
Neal should have got a penalty on both hits. One was interference and the other I guess was a charge, but it looked like the refs kind of made the charging call up after the fact. Didn't look like they called the penalty initially.
I'm not sure what Neal was doing on the Couturier hit. Maybe he thought the puck was there or he may not have seen Couturier right away. Only he knows. He certainly didn't try to avoid the collision, but we've seen the knee injuries you can get when you try to dodge a collision at the last second. Looked like the refs saw the hit and thought it was incidental.
