Nah, I don't think it was malicious attempt to cause injury. Just very reckless play by Cooke. Regardless of what Erin Ward and the drones on this board think - it wasn't a pin play t hat happens tons of times a game.

He was trying to take Karlsson out of the play with a *sort of* muscling/slew foot type play. Playing Karlsson's body (every Penguin and player not on the Senators is probably told to play the body hard).

That play happens sometimes and sometimes goes unpenalized but it's not a simple, safe, legit pin play regardless of what people in this thread and on the main board say. The Cooke play itself looks more like a slow-downed battle towards a puck that's being called icing. Two players battling for positioning. The common thread? This play and those icing plays often end horrifically for the first guy in. This time it was a skate, sometimes it's a stick taking feet out, sometimes it's a loss of balance by one of the two, etc...
