This. I thought the hit was borderline but with the chippiness of that game the intent was to make the hit from the blindside. I always get pissed about the "keep your head up" excuse to head shots.. big hit i have no problem with it. And there is several hits during the past 3 years where the man lowered his shoulder and went right through his chest or the main contact wasn't the head. I know its harped upon since kids started playing hockey.. doesn't mean you have a right to throw an elbow into someones head (ie cooke) or always leave your feet for a hit.
