Crap call from what I saw live (no replay). Cole hits Petry shoulder-to-shoulder, and they both fall on the ice an ackward way.

It was a Slew-foot, but accidental.

It was a clear slew foot and not accidental, and he deserved to be fined. He went right to the box with his head down because he new he was in the wrong.
