Yes. At the time, IIRC there was 2:06 left in the game, so a regular minor wouldn't have sent him to the locker room for the rest of the game.

Misconducts aggregate, so later this year he could face a suspension for getting 3 misconducts (if he nabs more misconducts, which he is always 90% to a misconduct call simply for putting on a jersey with "Cooke" on the back of it).
It's BS. He did nothing wrong and if the other team can't control themselves at the end of a game, the league has the power to lay the hammer down on them for it. But instead, they drop it on Cooke's head because they can and nobody will complain about it except Penguin fans.
