I agree that the refs were crap both ways, but that was NOT a penalty. Yes, Smith got bowled over nowhere near the puck, but it was obviously just an incidental collision. Very clearly on all replays, Armstrong was skating hard to forecheck the puck-carrier on the boards and didn't see Smith.

It looks bad and was unfair to Smith, but just a collision. Smith got in Armstrong's way as much as vice versa. It's just how the rules work.
