From The Washington Post

Penguins forward Matt Cooke has been suspended four games for hitting Blue Jackets defenseman Fedor Tyutin from behind last night in Pittsburgh.

Tyutin was uninjured by the hit, but he told the Columbus Dispatch it was “the worst hit I’ve ever had from behind. … I wasn’t surprised, not when you see [Cooke] in the highlights all the time for dirty hits.”

Cooke received a five-minute major penalty for charging and five minutes for his fight with Blue Jackets forward Derrick Brassard.

The incident came just two days after Cooke escaped punishment for a knee-on-knee collision with Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin. After Sunday’s game, Washington Coach Bruce Boudreau didn’t hesitate to share his opinion of Cooke.

Cooke “knows damn well what he did,” Boudreau said. “There’s no doubt in my mind that he’s good at it and he knows how to do it. He knows how to pick this stuff. We as a league, we still buy into this [idea] that, ‘Oh it was an accidental thing.’”
