No way Zubrus saw him coming.
I agree with alot that he wasn't hit hard. The point to all this years debates on head shots is...was the head the principle point of contact. Ovy's wasn't, Giroux's was.
Sorry, but Zubrus knew he was there. In fact, he tried to reach with his left arm to obstruct Giroux from going by him. He missed, which is why his head lurched forward and down. The ONLY reason Giroux hit his jaw at all was because he stuck it out. How Giroux can be accused of targetting his head is ridiculous. Those kind of 'catch up and cut the guys' hands off' checks are made 100s of times/game.
If Giroux gets suspended, it's a joke.
That the blind moron ref missed the blatant 'playing the puck in the trapezoid' penalty right in front of him is the only reason we're having this discussion.
The Flyers should have been starting the 3rd period on the PP instead of the PK, if not for the incompetence of the officials.
