from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider,
Ovechkin played another shift before the contest expired and appeared fine afterward but Coach Bruce Boudreau didn’t mince words when asked about the hit in his post-game press conference.
“It was Matt Cooke. Need we say more? It’s not like it’s his first rodeo,” Boudreau said. “He’s done it to everybody and then he goes to the ref and says: ‘What did I do?’ He knows damn well what he did. There’s no doubt in my mind that he’s good at it and he knows how to do it. He knows how to pick this stuff. We as a league we still buy into this that oh it was an accidental thing.”
Colleague Greg Schimmel went to the Penguins dressing room afterward and got the Pittsburgh take on the hit by Cooke. Both Cooke and Penguins Coach Dan Bylsma downplayed the contact.
