I don’t think this is as bad as Julien and Marchand are trying to make it out to be. From what I see looking at the replay, Ovi put on the brakes and basically just tries to ride Miller into the glass, but his momentum coupled with the fact he’s 30 pounds heavier than Miller just results in an unfortunate result. If this was say Lucic instead of Miller, Lucic would have just gotten pushed into the boards and stayed upright.

I even think the major penalty was a bit much, but nothing more should be coming.
