Matt Cooke said he won't retaliate after Dallas' Jamie Benn elbowed him in the head on Saturday.

Benn received no punishment for his actions. Dallas is scheduled to face Minnesota again Tuesday night. "The most important thing tonight is two points," Cooke said. "We need to put space between us and the teams behind us. This is a huge game. It's a team in our division and behind us. We have to have the focus to go out and win the game. That's the most important thing." Cooke was also diplomatic when he asked what he thought of the NHL's argument that Benn's hit was defensive and therefore not a suspendable action, but Cooke did add that he wasn't trying to hit Benn.

Cooke has been surprisingly effective offensively this season and may be worthy of a pick up if he continues to play on Minny's second line and perform well.
