Boston Bruins broadcaster Jack Edwards was not just critical of Penguins left wing Matt Cooke, he went so far as to compare him to an assassin. While it's true that Cooke had a reputation as a player who took cheap shots at opponents and has been blamed for ruining the career of Marc Savard with a blindside hit that gave him a concussion, he was neither penalized nor fined for that hit. Savard, who played for several seasons with the Bruins, has struggled with concussions since Cooke's hit and has not played since 2011 because of post-concussion syndrome.
