VIDEO: Kings' McNabb ejected for finishing check on fallen Paajarvi

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Brayden McNabb was ejected Saturday after a violent crash along the boards with fallen St. Louis Blues winger Magnus 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.
