If your going to skate in there and fight a guy to defend a teammate, at least give him the stick a little. As far as the hit, I watched it three times and couldn't really find the cheapness in it. This is hockey after all!
Malone hurt two players on this play and neither one was clean. Don't expect to see Malone during the first couple of weeks of the regulare season. He won the fight after a cheap shot but it's going to cost him.
GJ Gorges for jumping in for no reason and getting your a** kicked. I don't see how that was a hit to the head. The first angle looks like a head shot, but the other three look like the upper arm came in contact, and not the elbow. His elbow was tucked, Campoli saw it coming, that's all there is to it. I even made a slow-mo gif to see it. I see an over reaction. He (Campoli) looked up to watch the fight with NO problem and even skated away without so much of a boohoo.
I agree with 25Pens45. Really though what was Malone supposed to do here? U cant lay off a check bcuz the guy has his head down. There was a time when this was a mans game & if u were stupid enough to have your head down u would get run over & pay for it. Now every fairy Euro player & these **** Montreal always picks up get protected by these stupid rules. Here comes another shot towards taking checking & fighting out of the game I love. **** u Bettman & the ******* from the NHLPA
