    Takes a shot at a defenseless player, total non-hockey play.



    With the Doughty tax this is a one gamer right? No point to the hit but to hurt.

    Yes, we get it, Vegas beat LA so the NHL is a bunch of meanies. Try getting more than six SOG a period and maybe you will win a game this series.

    No, "we" do not like them. If there was a headshot, people would be up in arms. Thankfully, though, it didn't happen.

    it's a headshot I don't know why ppl are saying it wasn't. more of a stiffarm style and not a flying elbow. 2 min and move along

    Honestly from this angle it looks like McNabb just nudged Kopitar straight in the chest. Kopitar kinda snaps back cause he didn't expect the shove.

    These type of hits happen all game though, Heck Lewis cross checked a Vegas player in the head tonight didn't get called for it.

    Looks like an easy interference minor call. Need a better video to assess if it’s a headshot or otherwise more then a minor.

    Anybody else noticing HF leaning way further towards "keep your head up" than in the past? This was definitely unnecessary, intentional, away from the play, on an unsuspecting player, and the head was the primary point of contact.

    It's called a dirty elbow to the head. Which would be a headshot? Yes.

    Hard plastic elbow pads are softer than hard plastic shoulder pads? One was also a hockey play and McNabbs was not.

    Its plays like this that make me judge the integrity of NHL reffing. The ref is looking directly at it, no excuse for not calling it. If Doughty gets one game for his, this needs to be at least 2 as this is not a hockey play and its clearly intent to injure.

    Serious about what, the ref missing the call right in-front of him or McNabb deserving two games for an elbow to Kopitar's head?

    No dog in this fight.

    He sure looks like he lifts his shoulder up. I don't see any excuse of why he would do that.

    It was a missed call, agree with it. Two minutes and that's it. A 2 game suspension? No way

    Id agree with you up until the NHL decided to suspend Doughty for something no where near as egregious. Doughtys was a hockey play that brushed off the players shoulder and then made contact with the head . McNabb targeted the head and made contact with an elbow. If Parros wants to be consistent as he said he did, then McNabb should be suspended as well.

    Can agree with you on Doughty but I still think McNabb just wanted to block the Kings player. Having watched the video several times now I am still not sure if the elbow hit the Kings player at all (more the upper arm to me) . Still only 2 minutes for me and no suspension

    That looks like a head shot to me... Let's see how people defend it.
