The Montreal Canadiens were more than excited to have veteran defenseman Mike Komisarek back in the line-up last night, as Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports after the Habs’ 5-2 win over Philadelphia. Komisarek, you’ll remember, was injured in the fight with Lucic back on Nov. 13.
Just in time for Komisarek’s return, however, Lucic knocked Toronto defenseman Mike Van Ryn out of last night’s game with a potential concussion, as Tim Wharnsby of the Globe and Mail reports. Van Ryn was playing his third game after returning from a previous concussion. Of course, this was the second time Lucic victimized Van Ryn, who Lucic checked through the glass earlier this season.
