Clutterbuck pulled a Lindros, he turned across the middle of the ice with his head down, the knee wasn't targeted, nor was the head.
I think the aggravating factors were that it was two minutes left in the game with your team down. Also the fact that Clutterbuck is injured for an unknown amount of time.
Regardless of intent, he did hit with his knee first ergo "kneeing". Kind of like high sticking, you may have no intent to do it but stick goes up and cuts a guy, you're sitting for four. Kneeing is just that much more of an infraction.
