As I said above, there are numerous possible explanations for hitting someone late besides wanting to injure that player such as not realizing the hit would be late. There are far fewer explanations for cross-checking someone in the face.
There are far fewer plausible explanations when there is video of you sizing up your prey, taking a big windup to hit him while his face is clearly focused across the ice, and then hitting him hard and following through (his stick was low, but in the area where the damage was caused). You can try to make this an East/West thing, but the facts are in your face.
