Video- Match Penalty On Robert Bortuzzo For This Hit On Mark Giordano

from Aaron Vickers at NHL.com,

Giordano was carrying the puck up the boards near center ice when Bortuzzo stepped up and delivered a crushing blow to the Flames captain. Giordano took several minutes to get back to his feet as a scrum ensued. Bortuzzo was assessed a match penalty on the play.

"It's right there," Crosby said. "I'm not sure if he catches his shoulder or head. I've seen [Bortuzzo] step up a lot like that. The way he hits, it looks bad. He's a good guy. He gets low when he hits.

"I didn't see if there was exactly contact to the head or not. We saw a quick replay. It's hard to tell. Obviously the officials are well aware to try to get those hits out of the game, but that's a tough one to tell when it's that quick and two guys are coming that quickly together."
