He thrust the blade of his skate at Chris Osgoods face. Im sure he didnt mean to injure/kill him, but if his skate connected with Osgoods neck things could have gotten real ugly. He probably didnt mean to injure Karlsson but his instinct took over. He tried to slow up, trip up, tie up, slew foot, kick at, and in the end he caused injury. If a player has to be in control of his stick in scrum situations and is penalized if he 'recklessly' hits someone, then the same should be said for ones skate.
