It's obvious he looks like he's trying to screen the goalie with the hand, but this is a discussion about looking at Kipper. Don't bring irrelevant subject matter into this discussion or try to ascertain your victory by calling me a "homer."
He turns his head, man. His head pivots on his neck due to muscles controlled by his brain, and then he puts his had up.

And I very much doubt the ref saw the head movement, he saw the obvious use of the hand to screen the goalie. The issue is people suggesting Pronger was just directing traffic, when it's pretty obvious he was fully conscious what he was doing.
