Given how far Hillen was from the boards, and the severity of the hit he took, how isn't that boarding? Double points for injuring the player.

On one angle it looks like it's smack into the boards, on another it looks like he nearly simultaneously hits the ice and wall at the same time, but either way he's in that danger zone off the boards, is the smaller guy, and got hucked like 5 feet.

I mean, I'm not one barking for a suspension or anything, but in my opinion you penalize it on the ice.

EDIT: I think Crabb has been fine. He does his job and seems to be far more noticeable doing good things than bad ones.
