Ovetshkin clearly lifts his shoulder before the hit, and by doing so he can't hit anything else than Gonchars head. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know what happens when you hit a man straight at the head like that...

But Gonchar also should know better then to skate ahead looking down like that.

All in all, one of those **** happens types of things I guess. I hear it's not that serious what they originally suspected for Gonchar.
If you look very closely, Ovechkin doesn't lift his shoulder at all until he straightens up after the hit. The hit is 100% clean.

(Put the clip on pause and use the slider to freezeframe at the moment of impact and you'll see he doesn't lift the shoulder at all)

EDIT: Check out the hit by frames. http://www.geocities.com/fufonzo/ov_gonch.JPG

If that's a dirty hit, Scott Stevens is the dirtiest player to ever lace up the skates.

You and I salivate waiting for more hockey because Gonchar and his union want to make sure they can keep making millions, if anything it's karma coming back to him.
Well thats true, but i care.....

Fine if you dont though.
