VIDEO: Kings' McNabb ejected for finishing check on fallen Paajarvi
The result was devastating, as Paajarvi's head smashes on the boards before then being pressed into the ice and bloodied under an airborne McNabb. But the call might be a little harsh. Paajarvi inadvertently turtles, and in turn topples McNabb, when he's knocked to the ice from behind by Milan Lucic just before contact.
The Kings successfully killed the five-minute major charging penalty.
