``Look at Matt Cooke's penalty. That guy (Boston defenseman Bobby Allen) didn't miss a shift. He got carried off like he was going to get his knee amputated and then after the five-minute penalty, he was back on there. It's anger right now, and you have to watch what you say. We're angry that we lost a game we thought we should have won.'' - Washington coach Bruce Boudreau on Cooke getting ejected for kneeing during the second period of Saturday's 2-1 loss at Boston.
