According to the Twitter feed of Sportsnet analyst Nick Kypreos, Bruins forward Milan Lucic will not face supplemental discipline for his boarding call last night in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with Montreal.
The hit caused a cut to Jaroslav Spacek’s face in the second period of the Canadiens’ 2-1 win and earned Lucic a five-minute major and game misconduct.
Milan Lucic available for Gm 7 as he will not face further discipline from the NHL regarding his major penalty on Canadiens Spacek.
So we know Lucic will be available to the Bruins for tonight’s Game 7 at the TD Garden and the No. 17 sweater will be filled. Whether Lucic actually shows up to play remains to be seen. In six games, Lucic has recorded just one assist.
