It wasn't an elbow, but was an intentional shot to the head, which I hope is removed from the game very soon.
I wouldn't suspend him because it isn't against the rules, but if I were the Kings, I'd of sent someone out there to hurt Malkin enough so he wouldn't do that again.

Ummm ... looks like a hit. Didn't see the elbow up or anything.
It wasn't the hit itself. It was a fact that it was a blow to the head at the end of a 4-1 game when it was obvious that Simmonds was just coming in to give a simple stick check. He wasn't coming in flying like he was going to seriously challenge for the puck. He came in pretty half-assed (understandible at that point in the game), and Malkin took the opportunity to pop him one in the mouth with his shoulder.
Then after the play when the Kings realized what just happend, EM bee-lined it to the locker room as quickly as possible. Didn't want to stick around and answer for himself.
