Other than the face that there's a elbow to the head involved, there aren't a whole lot of similarities.
I agree in that there was no intent on Erskine's part to hit Simmonds in the face and that it was more an instinctual effort to protect himself but Erskine is still getting suspended. Hopefully it will just be a game.
If Eskine had had the same intent as Bourque did Simmonds would not have gotten up under his own power.
