Even if you don't follow the Washington Capitals very closely, you have to hate Matt Cooke. Every single time they play the Penguins, aka every time the most casual fans are paying attention, Matt Cooke always seems to do something of questionable moral intent. So anytime the Capitals can get a little retribution against him, it's a good day.
Check out this hit Matt Bradley laid on Matt Cooke in last night's Capitals win over the Penguins.
Quick side note, how awesome is hockey terminology? The Chicken wing? Sounds like something my great uncle Saul would be doing at my Cousin Jeffery's Bar Mitzvah.
I didn't get a chance to watch this game, so I'm not sure if Cooke did something bad during the course of it, or if this is just retribution for something he has done in the past; but I still feel confident in saying that he deserved it.
