**Man, it sure seems like the dinosaurs were still in charge as late as 2011. "Keep your head up" isn't a panacea when it comes to blind-side runs like the one Beaucheman took at Fischer. Sometimes a pass comes from behind you, like that pass to Fischer. He wasn't skating while staring at the puck, he was looking back toward the passer. The game has definitely become better as players lean that they can field those passes without getting their heads charged at.

**I say all of this as a Scott Stevens fan. He played within the rules--I'm glad the rules have changed.
