I think he was trying to explain why the hit turned out as it did by saying that he was actually trying to avoid laying a hit to the head that could possibly resulted in a concussion. Basically what he says there is that he didn't want to hit Clutterbuck in such a way that it would be dangerous, and that he changed the point of impact because of it.
I agree that it was not the best way to express himself but I think everyone should relax a little bit. It's hockey we're talking about and bad hits, intentional and non-intentional, is not really a rare thing. It is always unfortunate, and emotional when you're a fan of team which is at the bad end of a play like this, but it's part of the game and I don't really see it going away anytime soon.
Hopefully Clutterbuck is not badly injured, and I wish him quick recovery.
