Well if you didn't see...Matt Cooke's skate came down on Karlsson's Achilles tendon, and what looked to cut his sock, and most likely his leg.

Here's me, and all Sen fans, hoping this wasn't his Achilles tendon, but he couldn't put any weight on his skate at all...not good.

Updates will follow as they come in.

Ya, a cut could be better news then other injuries, but not if it went through his Achilles. Yee.

I'm hoping it is a cut upper Achilles, cause your skate boot does cover that area, but his skate did go down passed it, and he couldn't put an inch of weight on it...NOT GOOD!

They are saying lacerated achilles, what that means time wise, I don't know.

Surgery required, I bet he is done for the year.

I wonder if Cooke gets anything, if you watch the replays I swear it looks like he kicked him. But maybe that's because I don't like Cooke.

Look, I know it's Matt Cooke, and I know Chris Neil and the rest of the Senators and half the population of Ottawa are upset... But it was clearly an accident. He was looking down to his right at the puck when his skate his Karlsson to the left. To suggest otherwise is ridiculous. What, Cooke cleans up his act of hitting from behind, elbows, etc, and decides to make a splash with a no-look, purposeful laceration?

Think about it.

Yeah I'm in the same boat, I realize what Cooke was trying to do by pinning him, I do it too, but yeah it looks like his foot comes right down, and that's what is bothering me.

But I heard last night a 3 month recovery at least, so there is hope, but nobody knows how bad the cut was yet.

I agree with JR (as much as it pains me cause I hate Cooke), but looks to me like Cookes head is following the play amd this is just one of those wonky plays that everyone wishes didn't happen.

And in all honesty, if it was Neil on Crosby, all Penguin fans would have lost it, and said the same thing we Sen fans are, it would all the same around the league also.

It's just a tough pill to shallow because it's Cooke.

In watching the replays over and over now, I would have to admit that intent to cut his leg just wasn't there.

Yeah me too, you can clearly see his eyes on the puck, it was just the impact that thrust his leg forward to hit karlssons.

What do you do with a Matt Cooke?

He'll never win an individual trophy, or entertain us in a shadow of the way that Erik Karlsson does. You'll never plunk down $100 for a National Hockey League ticket and say, "Can't wait to see Matt Cooke play," the way you do for Karlsson.

But you can't deny him the right to play in the NHL if he can make the Pittsburgh Penguins. In fact, Pittsburgh couldn't be happier with their transformed checker this season, and surely lots of other teams would have him.

Cooke has by all accounts remade his image. Those who have spoken with him about the lengths he has gone to make sure he doesn't blow up opponents the way he used to are convinced he is genuine.

And who doesn't love a story like that?

Spector talks about Cooke's "reckless" play last night as if he were flying around the arena, spinning in a circle, with his skates out for anybody to cut. I thought that Aaron Ward did a decent job, last night, on TSN, explaining how this play happens several times per game without incident, and this was just one time where an accident occurred.

Well, that's too bad, really. Terrific player, and it really hurts the Sens blueline. Tough break, and here's hoping for a full recovery.
