Blatant Boarding Blues

Boarding concern

What the heck? During the recent game in Boston, our Canadiens were given a 5 minute major for boarding, for what i thought didn't deserve such. My thoughts were confirmed just two days later during a game in Atlanta, when in an incident the Thrasher player received only a two minute, boarding penalty - what looked to me more of a "intent to injure" penalty, and as consequence, should have been a major.

I blame the crowds response to "hits" on along the boards. The Ref seemed to be triggered and lost his focus. That's the beauty of when a home team's fans..."boos" over a hit to their player, results with the level of consequence reflected by the volume of crowd noise.

Please set me straight, what is boarding? and what was the difference if you, like me, saw both games.
