Watching the game last night, and watching the vid you posted - I honestly dunno how some here can say for any certainty that Chara knew what he was doing, and purposely drove Pacioretty's head into the "turnbuckle".
this looked like interference and no more... i know this wont be a particularly popular opinion. this play happens once a year and everyone mentions how dumb the rink design is and then nothing gets done.
another link to the video since that ones gone.....
I'm certain there have been numerous collisions over the years involving the edge of the glass at the end of the players bench, but unfortunately for Pacioretty he gets knocked out, and Chara is instantly public enemy #1.
