BOSTON — All we know for certain now on the night before Christmas Eve is that Freddy Meyer’s high hit on Milan Lucic in tonight’s 4-1 Bruins win at TD Garden earned the Atlanta defenseman elbowing and roughing minor penalties, and Lucic earned a game misconduct and match penalty for his response.

BOSTON — Milan Lucic did his part this afternoon to try to get the Bruins off to a better start against Carolina than any they’ve had recently.

He didn’t rip through his equipment and uniform at the 9:23 mark of the Bruins’ 3-1 win at Washington tonight, but Milan Lucic did get pushed over the line and finally threw down with Capitals giant John Erskine in a bout that ended with a takedown by the Boston winger.
