This is likely the case... though you never know with the inconsistency of suspensions.

G should just say he was bracing himself for the collision...

IMO... he should probably get 1 game, as much as it pains me to say, in view of the actual rules and how they SHOULD be interpreted,with the aim of eliminating headshots, though there is a contention that Zubrus moved just before the hit... but to be honest, with the amount of inconsistency, who the hell knows how the rules should be interpreted!
