Someone help a brutha out here.

I thought the NHL protocol (or at a minimum the Penguins protocol) is:

1. Rest / heal up after concussion
2. Start skating on your own, see how you feel.
3. If you feel good you can skate with the team BUT
4. You can't take contact until you get the IMPACT test first

Question 1: Is there a difference between the IMPACT test and the "baseline" test?

5. Then you practice with contact
6. Then you take ANOTHER test the next day to see if your score changed

Question 2: If you repeat 4-6 a couple times and your scores do not decline after taking hits in practices, you can be cleared to play in games?
