My take on the play at the time it happened remains unchanged. Mike Green would receive a major and automatic game misconduct for cross-checking while Derek Dorsett a minor penalty for boarding. The teams would play 4 on 4 for two minutes at which point the NY Rangers would receive a 3 minute power-play for the balance of the major penalty to Green.

If you missed the incidents...
from Aaron Portzline of Puck-Rakers,
An otherwise joyous night for the Blue Jackets was tempered by a serious injury to one of the club's most inspiring player.
Right winger Derek Dorsett suffered a fractured clavicle at 1:36 of the first period, when he was driven into the net by Vancouver's Andrew Alberts. The club announced after the game that he's likely to miss the rest of the season.
It's a big blow for the Blue Jackets. Dorsett has three goals, six assists and 53 penalty minutes in 24 games. Last season, he had 12 goals, 20 points and 235 penalty minutes -- all career highs.
a bit more and if you watch the video below (game highlights, injury is at the start), I think Dorsett suffered the injury from the hit by Alberts. Going into the net did not seem that bad but you can decide.
from Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch,
Blue Jackets agitator Derek Dorsett practices his art at a high level.
The right shove or jersey tug, the witty insult, the thunderous body check — Dorsett knows the places and time when each is most effective.
So it was curious that Dorsett seemed especially preoccupied with Capitals star Alex Ovechkin during a 4-2 loss on Saturday, considering that Ovechkin wasn’t much of a factor during the first two periods.
“I haven’t told many people this, but he spit in my face,” Dorsett said. “That got me a little more mad.”
Dorsett said Ovechkin spit on him when they were face-to-face during a fracas in which both were given two-minute minors (cross-checking for Dorsett, roughing for Ovechkin) at 2:38 of the second period.
“That’s why I was yelling at the ref so much and yelling at him in the penalty box,” Dorsett said. “That’s probably one of the most disrespectful things someone can do, especially a guy who is the best player in the league. It’s classless. He’s supposed to be a role model for the game. It’s unbelievable.”

After some confusion over what the word “spit” meant, Ovechkin denied Dorsett’s claim:
“No, no, no. I don’t know. Show me that moment, I want to see it. No.”
from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
Edmonton Oilers’ rookie Taylor Hall said Thursday morning that he had only been in two junior fights in his hockey life and didn’t like his chances with the bigger boys in the NHL, but after one goal and a dazzling rush later, Hall shockingly dropped the mitts with one of the toughest pound-for-pound customers, Derek Dorsett, eight hours later.
Give Hall an A for bravery, but an F for foolishness after he exchanged punches with the Columbus Blue Jackets’ forward, who’s had 14 fights this season. Hall hung in after instigating the scrap in the wake of a hard Dorsett hit along the boards, but fell to the ice, landed awkwardly and injured his left ankle. There was no immediate word on how badly he was hurt but it didn’t look good as he limped to the dressing room.

Derek Dorsett of the Blue Jackets breaks his right hand in this fight last night with Mike Brown of the Ducks.

James Neal will have a hearing with NHL officials on Friday morning in regards to his boarding penalty on Derek Dorsett in the second period. Neal hit Dorsett in the back and Dorsett’s head hit the glass. He was helped off the ice. Neal was given a 5-minute major penalty and a game misconduct.
“I didn’t have any intent to injure him,” said Neal, who watched the rest of the game from the dressing room area. “I hope he’s OK.”
COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed right wing Derek Dorsett to a two-year contract extension which begins in 2010-11 and continues through the 2011-12 season, club General Manager Scott Howson announced today. As is club policy, terms were not disclosed.
