Milan Lucic has recorded three goals and three assists in his past four contests.
"It's fun to get results and fun to be playing with confidence again," Lucic said. "I think the main thing for myself and my game, I've been able to get my legs going and my speed going. And when I have the puck, just making confident plays. It's been giving me results. To start the year and especially last month, I kind of got away from that. I was looking for answers and turning the page on the new calendar year coming. I wanted to get back to basics and it's worked out so far." Lucic's second half to the 2014-15 campaign is shaping up to be much better, so feel free to keep him in your lineup if he was normally riding the pine. Jan 15 - 10:01 AM

Milan Lucic has been playing some better hockey of late.

Lucic hasn't been himself for the most part this season. He hasn't been scoring and he hasn't been the physical force that we expect him to be. The 26-year-old has been playing extremely well with new linemates Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille. "I just think [it’s] kind of not doing anything real fancy, it’s just playing that straight-line type of hockey that I can play that’s really effective," Lucic said. The Bruins' winger has four points in his last three games, and 22 points in 42 games overall this season.

Milan Lucic provided the game-winning goal and another insurance marker as the Bruins strangled the Devils offence en route to a 3-0 victory on Thursday night.

Points have not been easy to come by this season for the under-performing Lucic, but he has two goals and two assists in his past two games. The bulky forward has eight goals and 22 points in 41 games thus far.

Milan Lucic earned a pair of assists in Boston's 3-2 overtime win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

He's been called out by his coach and CEO Charlie Jacobs is closely monitoring the team while looking to make changes if necessary. Lucic responded with a strong effort, but he's been mentioned in trade rumors and his contract only has one year remaining so he's looking for more from himself. "It's definitely on your mind considering you're getting close to re-signing long-term. But I have to take care of the things I can take care of, and that's my play; it hasn't been great," Lucic said. "There have been times when it's been good, but not enough, the consistency hasn't been there. I have to try and find that and keep proving, not just to myself but everyone, that I can be a top player."

Coach Claude Julien expects better play from Milan Lucic.

"We know what kind of player he is," Julien said of Lucic. "We'd like to see a lot more than what he's done. He's a heavy player, and everybody talks about his hitting. Yeah, that's one part of his game. But he's also a guy, with his size and strength, he can go to the net hard and get his nose dirty in those areas, and maybe that increased his goal production. But in certain games you see him with maybe one shot. He's playing some important minutes on pretty good lines, so obviously we need more from him. He's got to be capable of bringing more than (the) one shot he had in (Saturday's game vs. Ottawa)." Lucic has produced six goals and 18 points in 39 games this season. It was thought that David Krejci's return would help him get back on track, but that hasn't happened.
Jan 5 - 8:21 AM

The Boston Bruins are getting Milan Lucic (undisclosed) back on Wednesday.

Lucic was unavailable for Monday's contest against Detroit. He has 17 points and 69 penalty minutes in 36 contests this season.

It isn't clear if Milan Lucic (undisclosed) will be available for Wednesday's game against Toronto.

He didn't play Monday versus Detroit, but skated on Tuesday. Right now, Lucic is considered questionable.
Wed, Dec 31, 2014 08:11:00 AM

Milan Lucic (undisclosed) will not be able to dress Monday night against the Red Wings.

The big left winger is listed as day-to-day but won't be able to go tonight against the Wings. He has underwhelmed in the scoring department this year posting just six goals and 11 assists in 36 games played, but he has added 69 penalty minutes to help fantasy owners.

It's unclear if Milan Lucic (undisclosed) will be available to play Monday night versus Detroit.

He was playing regularly until he left Saturday's game with 3:24 remaining. Lucic didn't take part in Sunday's practice and he's currently listed as day-to-day. His participation in the morning session on Monday could determine his status.

Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien noted that both Milan Lucic and Patrice Bergeron are day-to-day, but didn't disclose their injuries.

Lucic fought Dalton Prout in a spirited bout on Saturday, so perhaps that might have something to do with it.

Milan Lucic did get the payback he was hoping for against Dalton Prout.

If you recall, Prout sucker-punched Lucic on November 21st and Lucic, who has a repuation as a fierce fighter, was not too pleased. Saturday night, the two had a slight skirmish in the first period that led to minor penalties. But in the second, Lucic started what was a long and pretty fair fight. Both Lucic and Prout got their licks in with Lucic finally earning the takedown. If you took our pre-game advice and activated Lucic you would have been rewarded with seven penalty minutes.

If you are looking for some penatly minutes Saturday night make sure you have Milan Lucic active.

Lucic will likely be looking for payback against the Blue Jackets, and in particular, Dalton Prout, who sucker punched him on November 21st that led to a one-sided loss in a fight. Just after that game Lucic had the following to say: "I didn’t like it [the sucker punch], but the good thing is we get to play them two more times." There is a very strong possiblity Lucic will get, at the very least a fighting major, so make sure you have him in your lineup.

Milan Lucic scored in Boston's 3-2 shootout loss to Nashville on Tuesday.

He opened the scoring at the 4:04 mark of the second period. Lucic's sixth goal of the season was his first in his past seven games. He also added four shots and four penalty minutes. He ranks sixth in the league with 60 minutes in the sin bin, but he's had trouble producing offensively with 15 points in 31 contests. Lucic should benefit when David Krejci is able to return from a nagging groin injury.

Milan Lucic and the rest of the Bruins were shutout 2-0 despite firing 31 shots at Kings' goalie Jonathan Quick on Tuesday.

Lucic did his best to stir things up as he had six hits and a couple penalty minutes in the defeat. It was a tough spot for any team, let alone an eastern team making the trip out west, and playing on back-to-back nights against the LA teams. The road swing isn't over yet for Boston as they play in San Jose on Thursday.

After struggling early on without his line mate David Krejci (lower-body injury), Milan Lucic has found a home on Boston's top line with Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson.

"It’s nice to finally get some results here," Lucic said. "If you see where I scored them and how I scored them, those are the things I have to do if I want to score the goals. That’s driving the net, establishing position in front of the net and stopping there to pick up anything that’s loose. In saying that, those were also two really good passes that got me those two goals. We just needed to keep it up and keep getting results as a line."
