Join The Washington Post on Tuesday to talk hockey before the Caps...
Thank You Matt Bradley Box Score
Michal Neuvirth getting another shutout and the Caps beating the Penguins, 1-0, will make all the headlines, but the Matt Cooke fiasco was the part we were anticipating.
To refresh everyone’s memory, Cooke is a f*$^&#%^@$%!$%@&%$&@!^%$%.
In Monday’s game, Matt Bradley charged Cooke. Later, Bradley fought with Ryan Craig (because the Penguins as of late have been sending their call-ups to fight the Caps). Meanwhile, DJ King didn’t get his fight, likely because no Penguin agreed. That is indeed a presumption, but considering the bad blood between the two teams, it’s fair to assume King was looking to drop the gloves with someone and couldn’t find a partner.
