Bourque apparently interpreted it differently and was thrown off guard, which made it look worse than it was.

We'll see whether Shanahan thinks anything in this game was suspension worthy but I won't be surprised if he doesn't.
I have no issues with Orr's punch to Bourque either. He was already engaged with Gio and Bourque came in there when Orr's head was down. He was already swinging and probably thought either I clock him or he clocks me.
I do think he tried to injure Plekanec though.
