if memory serves, it was a very similar (in style, not in result) to the one that put Neal out with a concussion. The only thing questionable about that hit was the fact that an elbow hit Neal in the middle of the face.
So, just philosophically speaking, I don't think you'll find many Penguins fans having sympathy for Tavares or thinking it was a questionable hit.
