Reports: Boxing Day hearing about Bruins’ Lucic’s boxing of Meyer

According to reports, Bruins forward Milan Lucic will meet his day of reckoning Sunday, Boxing Day, with the NHL over his sucker-punch of Atlanta defenseman Freddy Meyer in Thursday night’s third-period melee.

Lucic was assessed a match penalty, which carries with it an automatic suspension pending review. I would expect Lucic to receive a one-game ban based on his status as a repeat offender (he was suspended in the ’09 playoffs vs. Montreal). It’ll be interesting to see if the league does anything about Meyer’s high hit, which started the whole thing.
