PITTSBURGH — After news came down that he would not be facing any additional discipline, Penguins  forward Matt Cooke  told reporters Sunday at Consol Energy Center that he did not believe he should have been given a game misconduct for his check from behind on Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid.
Cooke, who has not been suspended in over two years, received a five-minute major and game misconduct for hitting McQuaid from behind in the second period, sending him into the boards head-first.
“I think it’s a penalty,” Cooke told reporters . “But I don’t think it’s an ejection or suspension.”
McQuaid remained down on the ice and, after woozily skating off, missed the next 8:58, with Cooke incorrectly saying that the Bruins defenseman didn’t leave the game.
“Initially it looked like he was hurt but he played a shift after,” Cooke said .
