He was going for a clean hit, Mikus tried to dodge at the last second and this happened. It's not like Getzlaf stuck his knee out when Mikus changed directions, he was coming in for a standard (hard) hit, and as far as I can see did not shift his knee positioning at all pre-hit, if anything you can see him clearly trying to throw his upper body into the hit, any shift in knee positioning is just standard movements due to him turning. Hopefully Mikus is OK, but I don't even think this should have been a penalty, Getzlaf really did nothing wrong IMO.
