Brown hit video

There’s no official video of last night’s hit by Dustin Brown on Antti Miettinen, but this is a pretty good one. The Kings have not heard anything from the league office about possible supplemental discipline, and the consensus seems to be that they won’t. Given the speed and nature of the hit, it’s hard to fault the on-ice officials for their call, but I’m having a hard time agreeing with commentators who say that it’s a clear hit to the head. Is it?
