I've been watching that hit over and over (like we have a choice). Did Brown skunk the refs' and Shanny on that one. It looks to me like Hanzal had him lined up for a side hit along the boards but instead, Brown changed directions and squared himself to the board and prepared for a hit. He never took the route of the puck, which was winding around the boards, causing the hit to look like boarding. I think he intentionally caused his own boarding. OK, guys. You can kill me now. :lol:

I don't think his intent was to get smashed into the boards, I think he was trying to scoop up the puck and quickly move to his left to get Hanzal off his tail instead of picking up the puck and continuing behind the net.
