It didn't take long for the Penguins' Matt Cooke to find himself on the receiving end of Bruins enforcer Shawn Thornton's fists on Thursday night. As anticipated, the gloves came off early. It was less than 2 minutes into the game when the Bruins struck back and retaliated for Cooke's blindside hit on Marc Savard on March 7 in Pittsburgh.
