Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said today during his conference call to announce the signing of Joe Corvo that Tuukka Rask and Milan Lucic recently underwent successful surgeries.
Twenty goals? Are you kidding me?
Next time, Milan Lucic shouldn’t set his expectations for the upcoming season so low.
BOSTON — Everyone knew that Tyler Seguin’s shot in power-play practice May 16 had an impact on Bruins forward Milan Lucic’s right foot.
We just didn’t know how extreme that effect was.
VANCOUVER — Over the course of his hockey-playing career, Milan Lucic has thrived in the biggest games.
He was the Memorial Cup MVP for the Vancouver Giants in 2007 and has enjoyed a lot of personal postseason success with the Bruins.
BOSTON – As odd as it might sound, right now they are the Batman and Robin of the Bruins.
And if Milan Lucic and David Krejci can’t come through for Boston in its most dire time of need, there’s no chance for the Bruins to triumph over evil.
BOSTON — It didn’t seem to bother David Krejci and Milan Lucic in Game 4 when the Bruins rotated a few different players on their right wing during a 4-0 win.
VANCOUVER — If there were any warm feelings about Vancouver’s native son Milan Lucic returning for Game 1 and 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, they’ve surely cooled off as the series between the Bruins and Canucks has increased in venom.
BOSTON — Much to the chagrin of my new-found Vancouver readers who were all in a tizzy when they watched Mark Recchi and Milan Lucic both wave their fingers at Vancouver biter Alex Burrows, head coach Claude Julien didn’t condone the actions of his players.
VANCOUVER — He might be just trying to fire up himself and/or his teammates, but Bruins forward Milan Lucic has suddenly created a media war where only one side is doing any fighting.
BOSTON — Milan Lucic might be lining up a new endorsement deal with the advice he’s been offering friends and family in Vancouver when they request tickets for the upcoming Bruins-Canucks Stanley Cup Final.
“I just tell everyone, ‘Stubhub.com.’ That’s your best option, don’t come to me,” said the Bruins forward today at the TD Garden.
BOSTON — No one in a Bruins sweater will attract more attention in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final than Milan Lucic.
BOSTON — Reaching the Stanley Cup Final with a win in tonight’s Game 7 would be extra special for the Bruins’ lone Vancouver native.
In light of the barrage of projectiles that were aimed at the Bruins by Tampa Bay fans after Wednesday night’s Game 6 loss at the St. Pete Times Forum, Milan Lucic has an idea for the TD Garden’s next giveaway.
TAMPA — The game might’ve ended with Nathan Horton and Milan Lucic again doing their Road Warriors tag team impersonation on a couple Tampa Bay players, but for the previous 60 minutes of hockey that bulky duo teamed with David Krejci to dominate the Lightning.
BOSTON – If Bruins head coach Claude Julien could solve his first line’s inconsistency problem, he surely would have fixed it long ago.
So we observers, along with the bench boss, are left to ponder the different reasons why one night Milan Lucic, Nathan Horton and David Krejci can look as dominant as they did in the four-game sweep of Philadelphia, and then can struggle to muster shots on net, let alone score goals, like they did in Tampa this week.
