Good he got 2 games. Probably should've gotten it earlier in the season. The hit last night was one hell of a sell job by Doughty though. That guy could probably step into a lead role on a blockbuster and not look out of place

Reason: Let's not
He didn't swing his elbow, he lifted it, usually that's a 2 minute penalty and generally not more than a fine. You can intend to have someone run into your elbow without intending to injure them.
You'll note I said SHOULD not IS. The NHL is far too lenient on dangerous plays, including elbowing. If you intentionally make contact with another player with your elbow you such be treated as intentionally attempting to injure.
As for calling that "lifting the elbow" I may as wall call punching a guy "extending the fist".
