Matt Cooke is in the middle of a disciplinary renaissance this season, and is having his most reserved season yet. But he made a questionable play against Brad Richards when the Penguins faced the Flyers which resulted Richards taking a pretty nasty backwards tumble. But according to Darren Dreger, he will not be facing any disciplinary action.

In case you missed the play, here is a video replay tweeted by @emptynetters.

You can certainly make the case that Cooke made some questionable contact that resulted in Richards taking that nasty spill, but there is no way to know for sure whether or not his foot left the ground to regain his balance or if he was making that move intentionally.
