The hit looks worse, but watch Brown's head. Not once does he even look towards Pominville. To target the head without even looking at him would be extremely hard to do, and it's all about intent. There's nothing to prove intent coming from Brown on any feed, which is why I chalk it up as a poor result, but not something worthy of even a penalty, nevermind a suspension. 99 times out of 100 nothing happens on that play.

EDIT: Not to mention the damage is likely done more from Pominville's head hitting the ice than the hit itself.
