Nasty hit, he saw nothing but numbers the whole way and he hammered him anyway. I love Ovie, but i'm getting really tired of all the dirty hits he dishs out. It doesn't help that the NHL refuses to suspend him no matter what he does.

Dont antagonize the Ovechkin fans. Somehow most of them do not understand how this is a dirty hit.

Ovie is my favorite player in the league right now, but you can't look at these things with rose coloured glasses.

i do think it was a hit deserving of a penalty but not a game misconduct or a suspension there has been far worse hits lately with no such action. I disagree with the refs today

Actually he has already been suspended once this year and received a game misconduct today. Dunno where this 'NHL refusal' is that you speak of.

There is no question Ovechkin is probably the best player in the league right now, but he does some pretty stupid stuff. I guess every player has their flaws.

I somehow missed or have forgotten about that suspension. I just think he gets away with a lot more than most because he's one of the leagues poster boys. Crybaby also gets away with a lot as well.

It's a conspiracy! Ovie WILL receive a suspension just so that Buttman can give Cindy the Ross and Richard trophies. And, probably the Hart.

Even if this wasn't a dirty hit, it's EXACTLY the play that Micky talks about when he says players need to let up and know that they don't have to make the play. Like the Mike Greer almost-hit on Rafalski last night. Ovechkin is a HORRIBLE judge of when he needs to let up and NOT make a hit out of common courtesy to his fellow players.

It's a dirty hit, but should have only gotten a double minor or just a major. Game misconduct was a bit overboard.

If they suspend Ovie and Cooke gets nothing I will be pissed.

To be fair, Cooke's hit was open-ice and didn't involve his elbow, so there's no rule against it.

Ovi was given a major for boarding—which he definitely did—and a game misconduct. There's a huge difference between the two plays when it comes to the rules of the game.

I'm so sick of hearing this faulty logic. Just because the league f***ed up and didn't suspend Cooke (and their logic there was faulty too) doesn't mean that something like this should be let go without a suspension since it wasn't "as bad".

Every fan of hockey should be pissed about the Cooke non-suspension, but that's no reason to say that bad plays later should get the same outcome out of some sense of fairness.

The league said no suspension for Cooke because there was no suspension on the Richards hit earlier this season, which is faulty logic since the non-suspension on Richards was a bad call to begin with.

Admit that the prior call was bulls*** and start making the right call moving forward.

There was no suspension on the Cooke hit because there was no penalty on the ice (correctly so). The hit was dirty, but what are they going to suspend him for?

You're putting words in the mouth of the NHL, and as much as I don't like Bettman and his cronies, it's unfair of you.

Im pretty sure the explanation for not suspending Cooke was it is to similar to the Richards hit. Sure the hit was legal, but they can still suspend him if they want. Cookes hit is a big reason the new rule was set in, so the refs can punish the players on the spot.

A major for boarding means an automatic game misconduct.
