Emelin boards Spezza, is tossed

I don't know what's worse on this play, Alexei Emelin's predictably ugly boarding of Dallas Stars forward Jason Spezza or the apologies made for a game misconduct-worthy infraction by the Sportsnet announcers:

Spezza was OK, and Dallas lost 3-2 to Montreal because Emelin scored the game's first goal and Montreal built 2-0 and 3-1 leads.

Put the pom poms down…

Could be one of those ‘looks worse than it is’ type plays. Either way, when a player has space from the boards like Spezza, there needs to be some level of accountability from the defending player.
