Video: Carkner Flicks Blood At Rangers Bench? Suspension Coming?

During the New York Rangers at Ottawa Senators game there was a fight between Matt Carkner and Derek Boogaard during the first period of action.  During the game it was reported that Carkner flicked blood at the Rangers bench following the fight and that is why he was assessed the 10 minute misconduct.  This video will show the incident but I cannot honestly tell one way or the other if he actually flicks blood or if any reaches the Rangers bench, but you can clearly see at the very least mimics the flicking of blood which could land him a suspension.  If James Wisnewski gets two games for simulating a sexual act at Sean Avery this would strike me as more egregious and should warrant at least the same.
