Sorry, but again that goes back to the latter photos I posted. Here is the definition of charging.

A minor or major penalty shall be imposed on a player who skates or jumps into, or charges an opponent in any manner.
Charging shall mean the actions of a player who, as a result of distance traveled, shall violently check an opponent in any manner. A “charge” may be the result of a check into the boards, into the goal frame or in open ice.

Ovie did not charge Girardi. How on earth is it a charge when the opponent thinks you have the puck and is taking a stride toward you? Girardi is just as guilty of charging then, but the difference is he is not as strong as Ovie.
