IMO this hit was the same type of hit that Thornton layed on Begin in the final regular season game between the two teams.
Where is the outrage now?
Why didn't Komisarik get tossed?
Because Thronton didn't play possum and run to the dressing room.
Simple... It wasn't from behind and the intent wasn't to injure. Komisarek should have gotten a penalty for the glove to Thornton's face, but then again Thornton had been headhunting since the beginning of the serie, so he got what he deserved.
