Pens-Bruins...what will happen...Kid Octane style...
And you can forget about all this nonsense about "going after Crosby." It never ceases to amaze The Kid how "fans" spew such ridiculous garbage and actually have the bullocks to claims they "know" sports. Anyone who comes remotely near Crosby in fashion will be paid a visit by Mr. Godard, he of 6-4, 221 lbs. (and only 2 assists on the year while dressing for roughly half of their games). Care to wager if he dresses tonight night if healthy?
But the real reason nothing is going to happen is the risk involved. Not many players in tonight's game will want to risk suspension (read: lost wages), injury, becoming a marked man themselves, etc. Plus, as stated above, who is going to do something? Bergeron? Satan? Ryder? C'mon, they would all get beaten up by Cooke, let alone probably Crosby and any other Penguin. The team and players will spin it as this is "an important 2 points" blah blah blah. Don't let reality mix with perception. Maybe one of the four aforementioned Bruins will tangle toe-to-toe with Cooke in an uninspiring fight, the crowd will roar and then it will revert back to a hockey game and not Braveheart on ice.
