Last week, I declared that Bruins winger Milan Lucic might be the best power forward in the game right now.
His results last week did little to change my mind. Lucic posted 3-1-4 totals in three games. For his efforts, readers of TheBruinsBlog.net voted him the Bruin of the Week.
Here’s how the vote panned out:
Who should be the Bruin of the Week?
- Milan Lucic (42%, 29 Votes)
- Tim Thomas (32%, 22 Votes)
- Nathan Horton (20%, 14 Votes)
- Andrew Ference (6%, 4 Votes)
Total Voters: 69
Lucic now has 15 goals, which leads the Bruins and is almost twice as many goals as Boston’s leading goal-scorer through 28 games last season. He is also the club’s points leader with 26.
His career-high point total of 42, set in 2008-09, is well on its way to being shattered. He’s even shown a knack for coming through in the clutch with three game-winning goals (although to be fair, he has four empty-net goals).
Lucic’s fight total and penalty-minute numbers might be down, but his career is still taking off.
Bruin of the Week is presented by Sully’s.
