Things that were wrong with Lessard's hit:
It was charging in that he took multiple strides gearing up for the hit.
It was elbowing, as he led with his elbow and that was the initial contact point.
It was a head-shot in that he hit the player in the head as the principal point of contact.
Lessard should be happy if that game is the only one.
Go watch figure skating...it's not a charge, he didnt lead with his elbow and the guy was bent over how was he supposed to not hit him somewhere around head? Get your f***in head up. I don't defend goons who cant skate like Lessard and I want the blatant head shots out of the game but if anything that meathead read the play pretty well and threw a good solid hit.
