Evander Kane Welcomed In Boston

from Douglas Flynn of NESN,

The Garden faithful certainly don’t want to see Kane lighting up the scoreboard when the Thrashers take on Boston on Thursday night, but Kane should get a warm reception regardless of what he does.

That’s because last year, Kane did what most Bruins fans wanted to see one of their own players do, when he delivered a devastating knockout punch to Pittsburgh cheap-shot artist Matt Cooke. Kane administered the beatdown on April 10, just over a month after Cooke had knocked out Marc Savard with a blind-side head shot on March 7….

“I know Milan Lucic pretty well, I played in junior with him [with the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League in 2006-07],” said Kane. “So he sent me a text, told me what was going on in Boston. It was a fun time. Like I said, that definitely wasn’t in my mind at all, but I know it got a lot of attention and was a pretty big story.”

more plus a video of the knockout if you need a refresher…

Can’t believe how Cooke is portrayed on 24/7.  He is a cancerous little creep and cheap shot artist.  If it were the old days someone would have taken care of him by now.  He flourishes in the new NHL because the rules protect him.
