Cooke Hit Changes Course of Two Franchises
The Bruins and Penguins have had a lot in common over the years, and not just the color of their uniforms! Recently they’ve both experienced the thrill of winning a Stanley Cup and the agony of losing their best player to a concussion. But the way in which these injuries occurred wasn’t similar at all. One, a devastating, reckless hit on Marc Savard by a guy (Matt bleepin Cooke) who has no respect for his fellow players. The other, a questionable, but by no means dangerous or intentional, hit on Sidney Crosby that some believe wasn’t even the hit that caused the damage.
