Bruins' Sights Set on Matt Cooke and Penguins

The Pittsburgh Penguins are in Boston tonight to face off against the Bruins at the TD Garden.

This is the first meeting between these clubs since Matt Cooke delivered a season ending head-hunter elbow to Bs star forward Marc Savard.

The obvious cheap shot (seen on the right side of the screen at :10 of this video ), which did not earn Cooke a penalty at the time, has been discussed by hockey fans on the Northeast, and across the country, since the March 7th game in Pittsburgh.

I don’t know what is more surprising; that there was no retaliation from the Bruins players during that game or that there was no suspension/fine issued by Colin Campbell , the NHL’s principal disciplinarian, after the game tapes were reviewed by him and his staff.

With Cooke and the Pens, coming to Causeway Street completely unpunished (either physically or judiciously), there is a unanimous belief that justice will be served on the Garden ice tonight.

Campbell himself will be in attendance and I am sure there will be plenty of action for him to punish before the night is through.

The question now is:

Do the Bruins go directly after Cooke for his transgressions? Or, do they target a Pittsburgh star with an "eye-for an-eye" strike?

Either way, something must be done and since the NHL took no action when it had the chance there is only one answer; old time hockey justice. Something that the once "Big, Bad Bruins" were known for.

So all eyes will be on Boston tonight. Puck drops at 7 pm EST. Gloves drop shortly after?
