In the replay It looked like Cody lifted his leg to avoid the net and lost his balance. The hit looked looked like he was fighting for position. Anybody else see that?

I don’t see either as suspendable.  Tinordi’s was a good clean hit where the puck carrier put himself in a vulnerable situation and Franson barely got touched and lost his footing.  It’s the NHL. Be strong on your skates…
