That wouldn't have been fair though... to the guy(s) compiling the stats for the game. Just think about how many hits would be delivered and having to note who hit who each time. Not to mention Phaneuf would have led the league in giveaways after tonight, I can hear the commentary now: "...and the puck goes round the boards to Phaneuf, he chips the puck up ice but his clearing attempt is right into Avery's feet, Avery with his head down looking for the puck... WHAMMO!"
