Richards went in head first, I'm glad he wasn't seriously injured on the play, but to be honest I'd suspend Kaleta for at least 4 games, Sabres fan or not. These are the things you want to keep out of the game.
It was barely a push, and Richard went down awfully easy. It was a stupid play by Kaleta, and I can see maybe a game or two, but it wasn't some malicious attempt to hurt Richards.

Also, the hit on Ennis, since there was a lot more force to the hit, had the potentially to be much more serious injury-wise. If you want to eliminate those hits, you have to eliminate all of them.
