Today in Kingston junior hockey playoff history

Posted: March 31st, 2013 @ 3:52pm

Today's installment in a daily feature that looks back at this date in Kingston junior hockey playoff history.

Tuesday, March 31, 1998

Matt Cooke scores twice and adds an assist but he's also at his irritating best for the Kingston Frontenacs as they defeat the London Knights 9-6 before a crowd of 2,903 at the Memorial Centre. The Frontenacs score five goals in the second period, two of them just 51 seconds apart, as they square the best-of-seven quarter-final series 1-1.

When he wasn't being productive, Cooke busy getting under the skin of the Knights. He drew a double minor penalty from Tom Kostopoulos and later a misconduct from 39-goal scorer Jay Legault, both of whom tried unsuccessfully to goad Cooke into a fight.

"London wanted to trade for me and I didn't want to go," Cooke told Doug Graham of the Whig-Standard. "I know (Knights coach Gary Agnew) is going to be using that to get his guys going but that's playoff hockey. You have to suck it up. You can't afford to do stupid things. They did and it paid off for us."

Matt Bradley and Chris Allen also had two goals apiece for Kingston, while Mike Oliveira, Jonathan Schill and Rob Mailloux scored the others. Jan Bulis had three assists. Mark Cadotte scored two goals for London, while Rico Fata, Joel Scherban, Kostopoulos and Jeff Brown scored once each.

Little did fans that night suspect that Kingston would go 15 years without winning another second-round playoff game.
