Those two hits were completely different

Cole hit: guy was coming across the ice Cole had plenty of time to make should to shoulder or shoulder to chest hit, but he did not he went shoulder to chin and did not make any body contact at all.

Tank hit: tank turns at the last second causing it to be shoulder to chin, but there was also full body contact making it a legal body check.

Making head contact is not illegal in the NHL.
