Exactly. This is the reason Jams Neal went overboard on Geroux near the end IMO. Once again there are 2 or 3 Flyers standing around all alone in our end. Neal had enough and went after him in an attempt to prevent giving up another free shot where the opposing player has an eternity to size up the goalie and put the puck wherever he wants. Say what you will about the hit to the head etc but he didn't score b/c Neal was one of the only players to say "I'm tired of this Sh** and I'm going to do something about it". I didn't think he was head hunting but just trying to hit him and prevent giving up another freebee.
