I still dont get it

How is the hit by Bickell on Bieksa not a penalty and/or suspension, and no one is even talking about it.

Yes it was behind the net in the 'hitting' zone, yes Bieksa was in possession of or in pursuit of the puck, that is the end of the similarities.

The differences : Bieksa was going East-West behind the net
                          Bickell was going North-South from the front of the net to the boards (a lateral head hit)
                          Bickell didnt even try to hit the body
                          This was as blatant a head shot as we have seen
                          No penalty is called
                          Nobody says anything following the hit (to me this is sickeningly biased)
                          Dont even get me started on Bollands free pass for Hack and Slash

So what gives? the qualifying points which supposedly made Torres hit legal dont exist in the Bieksa hit, but no one is even looking at this!

(for the record, I would have been OK with a suspension on the Torres hit)
