If he got a minor and a game misconduct, he probably got the misconduct for mouthing off and not for the boarding itself.

Terrible call, barely deserved a 2 minute boarding penatly, but its not like our god awful power play can do anything with it anyway, pretty sure the Devils outshot us on our 5 minute powerplay

Horrible, that shouldn't even be a penalty. He took him into the boards sooooo lightly and buddy just fell over.

Since when did lightly hitting someone cause massive bleeding from the face? Dirty hit, not malicious, though.

I thought it was obvious he didn't get the GMC from the boarding, but instead from the mouthing off? Are people really that blind?

The game misconduct was bc of an injury

Boarding + injury = 5 + game.

Porter was Bleeding from his face so it went from 2 to a game

Cut to the head, boarding call, result is a major and a game. Not particularly deserved, but the way the rule is written.

It is a situation where we want refs to use judgment, but it is easier to go with the default.

Massive bleeding to the face? Did I miss something? Not watching the game and I don't see "massive" bleeding in the youtube video.

As for the misconduct being given for him mouthing off I once again don't see any evidence of this at all in the video except that it's a little weird that he would be put in the box first then escorted off the ice - this could simply be two referees disagreeing with eachother or one correcting the other.

Either way the damage was caused because of the loss of balance leading to him falling face first into the boards. Foster did not put a lot of force into that, to me it looks like he was just trying to pin him against the boards, a play that happens 30+ times a game.

I've watched Foster play about 90 times over my life time and I can tell you one thing forsure, he doesn't go out and try to hurt guys. He's a pretty good sport.

Weak, weak call. Not like it matters if we go on the power play though.

refs screwed it up, but devils fans can all agree that Foster should be suspended for a few games

Probably not deserved in terms of maliciousness, but the rule is 5 and a game misconduct for a boarding penalty that results in an injury. It's automatic, just like a high stick that draws blood or putting the puck out of play in the defensive zone.

Pretty sure the Devils had more and better scoring chances than the Blues on the ensuing powerplay anyway, so.

And if you want to suspend him for a couple games, go ahead, I really want Taormina to get a real shot at PPQB.

Like I said, it was dirty, but didn't appear malicious at all.
