Tale of two calls (McCabe & Hartman)

Speaking of bad calls, today, USA captain and Wisconsin Badgers defenseman Jake McCabe was kicked out of the game between the USA and Canada on this play. After watching the video numberous times, I can't find a penalty. In my opinion, McCabe was incorrectly given a two minute minor and a game misconduct for contact to the head. I don't see it. Do you?

Today, the team USA had two contact to the head penalties, the second one was this hit by Ryan Hartman on Canada's Ryan Murphy and that was a legitimate contact to the head. It will be interesting to see if Hartman ends up with a disciplinary hearing for his hit on Murphy.
