I may be alone on this one, but I don't think it was that dirty. The end result, not good, but from my observations I see a player (Hall) lining Clutterbuck up just as he was about to play the puck, only for the puck to flounder in a different direction. It's a fast game and Hall had already locked into and committed for contact, only to not make full contact, therefore clipping him more down low/off to the side. Add in Hall probably doesn't know how to make these sort of hits with ease, and it didn't work out exactly how he wanted/intended. Unfortunate play, in my own opinion.

With that being said, the result and the way it transpired wasn't good. I think Hall committed for the hit only to not make contact how he anticipated given how it unfolded. I don't view Hall as a reckless player who would seek out this sort of contact. He may get suspended a game or what not, but I won't be surprised if he gets nothing.
