If the official isn't there, then Volch is able to rub him out along the boards. Pretty routine defensive play when in transition. Because of the contact, Volch actually had to shove the official away from him, and THEN recover, but by that time the Kings player had already made his move and the other Kings were already setting up in the zone. And everyone was scrambling trying to cover the wrong guy.

No contact and Volch makes a clean defensive play, no problem.
