OTTAWA - Jared Cowen sure did learn his lesson from being suspended two games for an “illegal hit” and having to fork over almost $32,000 of his pay as a result.

Yup, he learned that hockey is a game of inches…but then, he already knew that before, too.

As for how he reacts the next time a Zemgus Girgensons is looking to pick up a suicide pass through the middle of the ice, well, Cowen says he’s not about to just step out of the way and give up the scoring chance.
