Cites Rule 40.4 as more appropriate than 40.3

 

(a player) who deliberately applies physical force to an official solely for the purpose of getting free of such an official during or immediately following an altercation 

 

Bettman:


“In reaching this conclusion I have taken into account that the suspension will have been served during the Eastern Conference and Stanley Cup Final. While there is no precise formula that places a “premium” on playoff games, I note that the length of the suspension here might well have been longer had it involved regular season games.”

 

Why they apparently just discovered 40.4 remains a mystery....
