"Defenders could stay just close enough, within arm's length or stick-length, so that if necessary they could reach out and tug just a little, hold back just a little. Not quite enough for a penalty, it seemed; entirely enough to do the job. It didn't seem like much, just more borderline infractions in a game already heavily laden with them. It was the beginning of what years later in epidemic form became known as 'obstruction'."
>>Ken Dryden, in an added chapter to the 20th anniversary edition of his book, The Game
