On the Tom Wilson hit on Brayden Schenn last night...

What kind of *#$%@& can defend a hit like that?  A great hit?  How about you let Tom Wilson do that to you, Mr McPhee?

Biff Tannen needs to sit, and sit for a while.  I’ll be disgusted if he doesn’t have an in-person hearing.

Charging, boarding, blindside hit, intent to injure and unsportsmanlike conduct would all apply here. I think this might even qualify under the Instigator rule:

46.11 Instigator - An instigator of an altercation shall be a player who by his actions or demeanor demonstrates any/some of the following criteria: distance traveled; gloves off first; first punch thrown; menacing attitude or posture; verbal instigation or threats; conduct in retaliation to a prior game (or season) incident; obvious retribution for a previous incident in the game or season.
