Matt Cooke up to old tricks vs. Avs

Updating Monica's post:

I guess we can only hope for so long before Matt Cooke does what Matt Cooke does, per USA Today's Kevin Allen:

Key Colorado Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie left Monday's game after absorbing a knee-on-knee hit from the Minnesota Wild's Matt Cooke.

Barrie grabbed his knee after spilling to the ice and was unable to put any pressure on his left leg as he went straight to the dressing room.

The Avalanche announced that he wouldn't return to the game.

Cooke received a two-minute penalty for kneeing.

From SomeHockeyVideos, Ray Ferraro, on the TSN broadcast, told Gord Miller that Barrie said, "I'm done" as he skated by the bench:

Update: He is "done":

Completely intentional. There was never any attempt to play the puck. How long will this piece of shit continue to wreck hockey players with a slap on the wrist? They really ought to say enough and start penalizing teams that employ repeat offenders.

As noted in the next entry, Cooke is heading to New York to speak with the Department of Player Safety.

5 games minimum.
