Isn't Franson the guy the punched nuge in the back of the head to start the breakaway the last time these to teams played? If you don't believe that their is a GIF floating around, showing that clear as day.
It seemed to me like Nuge turned at the very last second. Franson extended his shoulder in a desperate attempt to make contact. Incidental contact in my opinion.

And regarding Nugent-Hopkins being "punched" in the head; maybe if he was a little stronger on the puck near his blueline in OT, that goal wouldn't have happened.
