Video- Matt Cooke ‘Hip-Check’ On Adam McQuaid

from Mike Cole of NESN,

Bruins coach Claude Julien was clearly agitated with Cooke’s play, a hit that Julien deemed to be too low.

“It’s pretty obvious that it’s a cheap shot from Cooke,” Julien said. “The typical, same guy. He’s gotta go low and getting a guy right around the knee area and turns his back.


Watch the hit below...

Julian complaining about cheapshots?
What’s next? O.J. Simpson rallying against murder in America?

Haha he turned his back and crouched slightly. Targeting the knees?

That hit that Marchand got suspended for last year, which the Bruins defended? That’s a low hit.

What Cooke did? Not a low hit. I don’t even think it qualifies as a hit.

Not that bad.  Awkward, unfortunate, moreso than out-and-out dirty.  Sounds kinda like the Karlsson hit in that regard.  Someone better send this video to Melnyk’s forensics team!

Cooke is a garbage player, but that was a clean hip check.
