I wouldn't call it a "slam" but it was definitely out of line.
Nate was chirping LaRose, but the penalty was on Bowman.
09:23 CAR Drayson Bowman : Boarding - 2 min (Nathan Gerbe)
The ref grabbed Gerbe by the front of the jersey with both hands, lifted the jersey with his fists up to Gerbe's chin and skated him up against the boards. All that was missing was the ref saying "Gimme your lunch money, Twinky," because it was a scene out of a junior high hallway. I've never seen an official do anything like that.
