Before the season, the Days of Y'Orr staff was talking about games we weren't looking forward to. Of course the first game against the Flyers came up. If you don't know why you are probably on the wrong blog.
But the first game against the Penguins also came up. We are not looking forward to this at all. Why?
Hey, call us bad fans but we're sick of the Cooke-Savard thing. At least the revenge aspect of it anyway. Yes, the hit was dirty. Yes, it sucks that Savard still isn't on the ice and may never be the same player.
But those of you expecting Cooke to end up in a pool of his own blood on the ice are likely in for massive disappointment. The only thing anyone is going to talk about all day is the hit. Every channel that covers sports is going to show repeated clips of Savard going down. Like we need to keep seeing that.
Thornton fought Cooke in the "revenge" game anyway before the Bruins decided playing hockey was dumb and got dominated by the Penguins in their last meeting.
And then of course the same people, some the very same who bitch about fighting in hockey, will talk about all the different ways the Bruins should torture Cooke. Or murder him. Not sure if people are aware, but the NHL frowns upon on ice stabbings. Thats one of the reasons Happy Gilmore's career never took off.
After the jump... some other tasty nuggets in Bruins-Penguins history...
