Errey Suggests Keeping Matt Cooke Out Of Harm’s Way
PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan)–Over the weekend, the Penguins locked up first place in the Eastern Conference with a win over the Boston Bruins. To talk about the Penguins, Bob Errey joined the Fan Morning Show in his regular weekly spot on Monday Morning at 9 a.m.
The bigger story in Boston was the events of the week with the Marathon bombings and search for the suspects. The game was originally scheduled for Friday, but was postponed until the suspects were captured. Bob says that it felt like the team was in a movie. They were not directly in harm’s way, but were stuck in the team hotel trying to stay out of the way of law enforcement so that they could do their jobs.
As for the last four games of the season, Bob says there might be opportunities to rest some players. But, players do not want to take a night off, Bob said.
“Guys just want to reinforce the system, keep their legs under them,” Errey said.
Matt Cooke will be playing the Ottawa Senators for the first time since his skate cut the Achilles of star defenseman, Erik Karlsson.
“It wouldn’t be the worst case scenario,” Errey said of the possibility of Cooke sitting out Monday’s game.
