It's the difference between escalating a situation and creating a situation.

When someone falls victim to a slewfoot or gets hit awkwardly, they should never get up with the though "I'm going to get even." Just let it go and score some points, or prevent them from scoring. If someone wants to play dirty, let them play dirty. Everything comes back around in the end.

When someone pokes at a goalie freezing the puck, it creates a situation where the goalie can get injured quite easily. Notice I didn't say the goalie should go after the guy.

That's the difference.
