The Briere Cross-Check/Carcillo cheap shot?

Well, I guess Briere got a three game suspension for his cross check to the face.

seeing the video replay confirms that the correct call was most likely not made, but also don't forget in the defense of the official, making the boarding call and seeing an injury result carries an automatic game misconduct penalty in addition to the major.

This is the verbage from the USA Hockey rule book regarding that (I know its not the NHL book, but carries the same idea):

Rule 604 (B)

When a player injures an opponent as the result of

“boarding,” the Referee shall have no alternative but to

impose a major plus a game misconduct penalty on the

offending player.
