I agree, nothing dirty about the hit. But it wasn't a routine play either. Markov, for some crazy reason, turned into Cooke and moved further away from the boards thinking he can hit Cooke before he hit him. Had he stayed along the boards, nothing happens. Had he tried to dodge the hit, nothing happens. Being afraid that this sort of fluke play might happen again if like being afraid Markov might get his tendon cut again by Price's skate because it's routine for a defenseman to stay around the crease area.
