07:18 AM ET 05.13 | Pretty slick with the puck, Erik Karlsson proved just as slick dismissing chatter about the Senators' Round 2 matchup against the Penguins -- and Matt Cooke. As soon as the matchup was settled late Saturday night when the Penguins knocked off the Islanders in overtime, Karlsson sent out a tweet to try to calm the waters and make sure the focus is on what happens on the ice. "Wonder how many (questions) I'm gonna get now about my injury. Lol," wrote Karlsson, who hashtagged the tweet with #whocares #oldnews #playtowin. ... Karlsson isn't concerned it will be a distraction. "Absolutely not," said Karlsson. "It's not something I walk around and think (about) or put any thought to. As I said, I think he feels the same way."

LOL, the last time the Sens dismissed this issue they came out and threw the game away.
Here's to hoping they do that again and ruin their series.

They would be stupid to make this series bout that incident.

And the Pens would be stupid to take this team lightly...again.

And because I am not sure where ele to put it, congrats to Puck, as his team fought hard and showed a lot of heart.

I'd say the Sens have bigger fish to Cooke.

That is my sincerest hope. Let them beat Cooke even more senseless than he already is and give the Pens a bunch of powerplays.

Let's Go Pens!

Wanna bet your house on it? I know I won't. It's the playoffs. Anything can happen ... and usually does.

Cooke's a shrimp.

Pens - This series can't be much worse than the last two, can they? Here's to hoping their play can get better, or at least close to the level with which they played the 90% of the season.
