yeah its probably wrong. i just checked tsn.ca and their boxscore says fight instigator misconduct.

emelin is in a precarious position, he's not " established" so if he turtles, against the bruins in boston, he will the the tag that Claude lemieux did, but if he goes it could be his career. the league generally does not treat players who lay out big hits but wont fight well at all. I'm just glad that no one got seriously hurt, didnt think the cross check on seguin was all that bad but I understand that chara could have interpreted it another way.
