Boston forward Milan Lucic scored his fourth goal of the season in the Bruins' 3-2 overtime loss to the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins Monday night.
Lucic now has four goals on the season. He also had three shots on goal and three hits in the game. The Bruins' other goal came from defenseman Joe Morrow, his first in the NHL. Boston had two goals disallowed in this one. The Bruins thought they scored the tying goal when defenseman Kevan Miller took a wrist shot from the left point that Patrice Bergeron tipped and then batted the rebound out of the air with a backhand swipe. The goal was waved off on the ice after officials ruled that Bergeron's contact with the puck was played with a high stick. Another Bruins goal was disallowed when it was ruled that Boston forward Carl Soderberg directed the puck into the net with his glove. Nov 24 - 10:21 PM

Milan Lucic skated on a line with Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson on Saturday night

With injuries to David Krejci and Chris Kelly, Claude Julien was forced to find new line mates for Lucic. The 26-year-old has just one goal and one assist in his last 11 games. He has been forced to play with different centers because the Bruins have been hit so hard by the injury bug.

Milan Lucic will be looking for revenge on Dalton Prout December 27, the next time the Boston Bruins and the Columbus Blue Jackets meet.

Lucic was livid after the game Friday as he told Prout he did not want to fight as the overtime was ending, but Prout allegedly punched him, knocking the big man to the ice. "It’s the end of the game," Lucic said. "I let him know I wasn’t going to fight him. I wasn’t prepared, I let my guard down, and that’s what happens sometimes when you let your guard down. I’ve been in over 100 fights, and I never took a shot like that. Like I said, we get two opportunities to play the Blue Jackets, and I’ll be ready." Looks like Lucic will not enjoy Christmas as much as he should as he will be thinking about the first game back against the Jackets. It might be a good idea to have one or both in your lineup that night if you are looking for penalty minutes.

Despite losing a controversial "fight" on Friday, it looks like Milan Lucic should be good to go for the Boston Bruins against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

He still probably has some hard feelings for Montreal, so don't be shocked if you see a motivated Lucic tonight. Lucic has 10 points, 45 PIM and 65 hits so far in 2014-15.

Milan Lucic will be back in Montreal on Thursday for the first time since he was fined for an obscene gesture to the crowd back on Oct. 16.

He knows he'll be facing a hostile crowd, but he won't approach the game different;y. "It’s tough, but that's one of the things you kind of learn when you become a pro. You block out all that stuff on the outside," Lucic said. "As the years go on, you tend to tune those things out and just focus on playing the game. That's what I have to do: tune everything out and just focus on playing the best game that I can. That's one of the things you have to try to spin it into a positive feeling to get those competitive juices going, get yourself riled up. For myself, I've always been a guy, when I play with that type of emotion, it's when I've been at my best." Playing divisional games against Toronto and Montreal on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, may be just what he needs to get going. Lucic has one goal in his past five games.

Oct 23 - 10:03 PM

Milan Lucic collected three assists in Boston's 5-3 win over San Jose on Tuesday night.

Milan Lucic apologized for the lewd gesture he made to Canadiens fans at the Bell Centre on Thursday.

"I don’t want to get into the details of everything, but obviously I’m not proud of what I did there, and I just want to apologize . . . for embarrassing the Bruins organization, and I also want to apologize to our fans and apologize to the Montreal Canadiens organization and the Canadiens fans," said Lucic. "I know they can get under your skin sometimes, but they are great fans. . . . I regret what I did." Lucic was fined $5,000 for the gestures.

The NHL has fined Milan Lucic $5,000 for gestures he made to the crowd in Montreal on Thursday night.

That is maximum that is allowed without a hearing. Lucic was upset with a penalty call late in the game and he responded obscenely to the crowd after he was taunted.
Oct 17 - 12:02 PM

Milan Lucic registered two assists and 12 penalty minutes in his first game of the year against Montreal on Thursday.

He was assessed a boarding penalty late in the third period and was given a misconduct one minute later. Lucic earned an assist on Zdeno Chara's power-play goal to open the scoring and he had a hand in Simon Gagne's first marker as a member of the Bruins. The helpers snapped a five-game pointless skid to start the season.

Milan Lucic has not looked comfortable on the ice so far this season.

With the absence of David Krejci, Lucic has been playing on a line with Ryan Spooner and Matt Fraser. The results haven’t been pretty for Lucic or the Bruins so far this season. After defeating the Flyers on the opening night of the season, the Bruins have now lost games to Detroit and Washington. Of course Lucic had off-season hand surgery, and may still not be 100 percent healthy. David Krejci, Lucic’s usual linemate, is eligible to come off injured reserve for Monday’s game against Colorado.
Oct 12 - 9:25 AM

Milan Lucic finished with a game-high 12 penalty minutes in the Bruins’ 4-0 loss to the Capitals on Saturday night.

The Bruins might’ve lost this one in lopsided fashion on the scoresheet, but they still controlled the possession game. Lucic, though, hasn’t yet found his game offensively, with tonight’s lone shot the only one he’s gotten all season. Dennis Seidenberg finished with a team-high five shots on goal.
Oct 11 - 9:59 PM

Milan Lucic played alongside Ryan Spooner and Matt Fraser in Boston's regular season opener on Wednesday night.

The newly-formed trio predictably didn't have much chemistry, but Lucic seemed pleased with their performance. "I think it got better as the game went on," Lucic said. "We didn’' play much together in the preseason or anything. The good thing was we didn't get scored on. We have lot to build on heading into (tonight's) game. We've just to get into synch a little bit more. Hopefully it'll happen sooner rather than later. Hopefully we can find it (tonight)." He was projected to play with David Krejci and Loui Eriksson this season, but Krejci was injured and Eriksson was reunited with Carl Soderberg.
Oct 9 - 9:57 AM

Milan Lucic says that the broken hand he suffered in last year’s playoffs still isn’t fully healed.

Lucic had off-season surgery to repair the damage he suffered, but he still isn’t 100% healthy. "It’s OK as far as this goes," said Lucic, flexing his wrist. "But I think right now it’s about getting over that mental hump, feeling comfortable in the battles again, being able to play reckless, just being able to play the way I need to play."
