Kreider learned a lesson (knows where the refs are) and should be more careful when throwing his weight around.
I don't agree and I'm not sure you do either. You correctly state it was a clean and legal hit. So why a penalty or game misconduct? Sending Tyutin into the boards at that distance when he is facing the boards is dangerous. Hitting him shoulder to shoulder anywhere on the ice can't be ruled a penalty.
Like usual the refs in this league have no clue what they are doing. A puck to the head to knock some sense into him would have been fitting. If anything the ref should be suspended for not knowing the rules. He potentially cost the Rangers points and he gets off.
