When you line someone up for a hit and then they dodge, its kind of natural to try and still get a piece of him which is why we see these types of knee on knee hits. Doesn't make it right though. Penalty for sure, not sure about the major. But I can see why it was called though.
I doubt the player was diving. I had a similar injury on a similar play when I played high school hockey. It's extremely painful and I think I did the same thing that Mikus was doing...It sucks, it hurts, and you end up screaming and rolling around. Sucks so much...
