this. schenn didn't have anywhere to go. turning the way he did was his only chance at avoiding the check. if he continued skating he'd still have gotten rocked awkwardly into the boards and likely gone face first anyway. it's not his responsibility to face the player about to charge him. i don't understand why people have this attitude or think it factors at all into the supplemental discipline.
