from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times,
Matt Cooke returns to the Minnesota Wild lineup for Friday’s Game 4 coming off his seventh suspension, the seven games he sat out for kneeing Colorado’s Tyson Barrie upping his career total to 32.
But Cooke continued to insist he’s a changed man, and that the Barrie play was the exception, not the rule.
“Although this one situation happened, I still believe and know that I’m in a good spot as far as the way I approach the game, to go out and play a physical style without being [risky],” Cooke said on Wednesday. “Obviously, there’s the one situation that’s going to be in my head that it happened, but I’m a firm believer in the work that I’ve put in to change the style, to change my approach to the game, to allow me to go out and have success.”
