Penguins LW Matt Cooke will not face a suspension for his five minute Major boarding penalty of Adam McQuaid in Game 1. Cooke moments ago spoke and indicated that he felt the hit deserved a penalty but not an ejection. “I think it’s a penalty,” Cooke said. “But I don’t think it’s an ejection or suspension.” Cooke mentioned what the replays showed in that McQuaid knew Cooke was coming as he looked back at him and Cooke says as McQuaid looked to reserve at the last minute, he was already committed to hit him.
