Throughout the course of his career, Matt Cooke has been notorious for dirty plays and dangerous cheap shots. Bruins fans know this all too well, as Cooke was the guy who essentially ended the career of Boston forward Marc Savard with a brutal elbow to the head that landed Savard with a level three concussion.
And while many have lauded Cooke for his recent clean streak, the Penguins forward didn’t waste much time in delivering a very dangerous hit in the Pittsburgh-Boston Eastern Conference Finals series. Cooke was ejected from Game 1 of the ECF on Saturday after boarding Adam McQuaid face first into the glass early in the second period. Cooke was assessed a five minute major and a game misconduct and McQuaid was shaken up on the play and had to head to the Bruins locker room.
Fortunately for Cooke, McQuaid ended up checking out okay and it doesn’t look like the controversial Pens forward will face any supplemental discipline from the league.

Matt Cooke isn’t very well liked around the hockey world and even the folks in Pittsburgh are growing tired of his act.
After Cooke was tossed from Game 1 against the Bruins for hitting Adam McQuaid from behind, Bruins fans and media began calling for the NHL to rid of the Penguins’ goon once and for all. Pens fans and media, for the most part, backed Cooke, claiming McQuaid...
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke received a major penalty, a 10-minute misconduct and a game misconduct for boarding Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid. As the CBC's Glenn Healy posited after the fact, McQuaid peeked over his shoulder, saw Cooke coming and chose to turn toward the boards to play the puck, but this is still textbook boarding-into-the-numbers and it'...
What a joke they gave this clown Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke the Masterton Trophy. This guy has been suspended at least 31 games by the NHL for his acts of transgression.
I think this hit deserves a game suspension for the NHL's department of Players safety. I actually think that Krug did his teammate a favor by slowing down Cooke, or this would have been even uglier...
Some people take sporting events far too seriously.
After Matt Cooke was ejected from the Bruins-Penguins game, a Pittsburgh fan went too far with his Boston hate on Twitter. Check out Jordan Kuruc‘s tweet below.
Needless to say, Kuruc’s has received a constant stream of hate via Twitter since he sent out his stupid remark. The tweet has since been deleted, but not before Kuruc’s...
One of these hits is worth a five minute major and game misconduct, and the other is worth only two minutes:
What's the difference?
It appears the fact that McQuaid laid on the ice and pretended he was hurt, while James Neal got up. No absolving Matt Cooke here, but that hit is not a five-minute major.
No word if Cooke will face suspension.
Jarome Iginla, you’re off the hook.
While Bruins fans might have entered the Eastern Conference finals with an axe to grind regarding Iginla’s no-trade drama at this year’s deadline, Matt Cooke has firmly moved atop any list of most-hated opposing players. Already despised for his career-ending hit on Marc Savard, Cooke was up to no good once again in Game 1.
His check from...
Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins got off to a bumpy start early in the second period. Penguins forward Matt Cooke delivered this crushing hit to Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid, hitting him right in the numbers. Cooke was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the hit.
Later in the period, Brad Marchand hit...
Here is the tweet by Jordan Kuruc that went viral on twitter last night after Matt Cooke was kicked out of the game. It's evidence that you should have a breathalyzers or a stupidity meter attached to your twitter account before you send a tweet out there into cyber space.
The bad part is that this will be out there forever and when someone searches his name on the Internet...
Lead singer of the rock band Forbearance, Jordan Kuruc, is an avid Penguins fan who wasn’t too pleased with Matt Cooke’s ejection from game 1. He took to Twitter to air his dirty laundry for the world to see, posting the following (now deleted) tweet:
What an idiot. He immediately apologized via his Twitter page but his band mates still weren’t pleased with him. The group...
According to Haggs, Bruins Best Friend Matt Cooke won't be getting a phone call from Brendan Shanahan for his hit on Adam McQuaid. Not surprised. It was a garbage hit but didn't seem to fall into the realm of where the league would suspend someone -- even if it is Matt Cooke.
Some of the Bruins didn't think Cooke's hit was deserving a suspension either...
As expected no further #NHL discipline regarding #Pens Cooke hit on #Bruins McQuaid. Cooke avaiable

Meh! Penguins forward Matt Cooke will escape supplemental discipline for his dirty hit on Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid. I would suppose that the NHL Department of Players Safety put Cooke on double secret probation and any...
The Big Leagues We’re only one step away from the biggest stage, and Matt Cooke is still laying down dirty hits.
The Penguins owned the Bruins during the regular season. But does that mean anything for the Eastern Conference final?
Not according to Jack Edwards, who says the Bruins are a much, much better team than they were during the year’s first 48 games. Edwards phoned in for a Friday morning interview with WAAF to discuss the impending playoff series, and noted that Boston is playing...
((HT: NHL on NBC/CBC))
There was no disputing that the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins was going to be a face-to-face situation where neither side was going to flinch.
Evidence in that came in the form of the second period...
Boarding penalties on Matt Cooke (on Adam McQuaid) and then, with 30 seconds left in the period, by...
You have to love kids and the things they say and do. Nothing like the pure innocence of youth.
This 8 year old Bruins fan puts the NHL pundits to shame with his ECF prediction. Boston is indeed on their way of taking a dump on Pittsburgh after their Game One shutout win.
This young artist needs to make sure the hot steaming poop lands on Matt Cooke’s face.
