I kind of thought Pens fans were smarter than that but I guess some of them aren't. Look at the box score. They had just as many pp opportunities and didn't capitalize. Although they didn't have a 5-3 or as much pp time they still got chances. The only people they can blame is Cooke, them as a team (i.e.; NOT just Niskanen) and their lack of production on the power play today. They score on one or two of those opportunities and it's a different game regardless of Cooke's stupid play or Niskanen's lack of control over his stick.
I read all the posts on the Penguin board. Literally 90% of them put 100% of the blame on Cooke. Only a few dopes stuck up for him.
