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.
BOSTON — Never mind his willingness to own up to his mistakes.
Milan Lucic is even willing to add to the list of things he did wrong leading up to Tampa Bay’s game-winning goal in yesterday’s Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final in Tampa.
TAMPA — As the Bruins’ leading goal-scorer in the regular season, Milan Lucic could stand to put a few more pucks in the net to help Boston’s postseason cause.
TAMPA — For the second straight game in the Eastern Conference Final, Bruins winger Milan Lucic did not take the morning skate.
BOSTON — This morning, Patrice Bergeron was on the ice and Milan Lucic wasn’t.
Tonight for the warm-up before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final, the roles were reversed.
BOSTON — There was no denying Patrice Bergeron’s presence on the TD Garden ice this morning as the Bruins prepared for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final with Tampa Bay.
But Milan Lucic’s whereabouts were a little harder to pin down.
We’re 12 games into the Bruins’ 2011 run through the Stanley Cup playoffs, and Milan Lucic has recorded more misconducts than goals.
BOSTON — Any momentum Milan Lucic got from scoring his first two goals of the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs in the Bruins’ Game 4 victory over Philadelphia last Friday might’ve ended with the eight-day layoff Boston has worked through before tomorrow’s start of the Eastern Conference Final.
BOSTON — Milan Lucic entered tonight’s Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series with no goals in his last 20 games for the Bruins.
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.
Contrary to popular opinion, the referees did not win tonight’s Game 6 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series between the Bruins and Montreal.
