Cookie Monster Out Until Second Round of Playoffs

by: The PensNation Staff

Forward Matt Cooke met with officials today about the hit he layed on McDonagh yesterday during the thrid period of the Penguins 5-2 loss to the Rangers. The official word out of Toronto is that Matt Cooke will be suspended the rest of the regular season and the first round of the playoffs . This is a rather harsh punishment in fact the longest in team history yet fitting because he is a repeat offender. The NHL had a chance to send a message here after all the uproar over the past couple weeks especially after the hit by Chara that landed Max Pacioretty that landed him in the hospital with severe injuries.
