Richards actually fell relatively SLOWLY towards the boards in a very strange, awkward manner.
That was actually a strange play. Richards reacted strangely to the push, he fell awkwardly and did a horrible job of breaking his fall, he was a far distance to the boards which added to the awkwardness, and then of course
it all seems worse when he throws his gloves off and pretends to be shot by a rifle, only to miss maybe 1 shift and get back on the PP.
I think the play on its own merits when viewed in totality is borderline non-suspension material. Given who did the hitting and who got hit, Kaleta will get 4 or 5....
To be fair, he probably got a stinger:
And those things hurt like a mofo and can scare the **** out of you since part of your body's suddenly numb
like others have said, Richards' approach straight into the boards was really dumb, but Kaleta hitting him was also a stupid play to begin with
