Milan Lucic is looking to extend his perfect run against his former team, the Boston Bruins.

Between Lucic's time with the Los Angeles Kings and now the Edmonton Oilers, he's faced Boston three times and his team has won all of those contests. Lucic will try to make it 4-0 on Thursday. Of course Lucic has a long history with Boston, having played his first 566 regular season games with the Bruins and another 96 in the playoffs, including the Bruins' 2011 Stanley Cup championship.

Milan Lucic found the back of the net in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Lucic's goal at the 11:51 mark of the first period tied the game at one. He also dropped the gloves with Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo tonight. The big power forward finished the contest with a plus-1 rating, five penalty minutes and one shot on goal in 14:35 of ice time. Lucic has 14 goals and 35 points in his first 64 games with Edmonton. Mark Letestu scored the game-winner for the Oilers.

Milan Lucic scored his 13th goal of the season during Sunday's 5-4 loss to Nashville.

He's now up to 34 points in 63 games this season. He has just two goals and four points in 11 games during the month of February.
Feb 26 - 9:33 PM

Milan Lucic scored the game winning goal at 9:50 in the third as the Oilers beat the Blackhawks 3-1 Saturday night.

Lucic’s 12th goal of the season snapped a 10-game streak in which he failed to find the back of the net. In that span of games, he earned only three assists, which has limited his relevance.
Feb 18 - 9:58 PM

Milan Lucic has a 10-game goalless drought and he has posted just three assists during that span.

Lucic has been credited with two shots or less in nine of those outings. He also hasn't scored a goal at even strength since Dec. 6 against Buffalo. Lucic has contributed 11 markers and 31 points in 58 contests in what has been a fairly disappointing season so far.
Feb 18 - 10:47 AM

Milan Lucic has gone 28 games without scoring a goal during even strength.

That's pretty bad and while he has three power play goals during that time, his lack of scoring is a big cause for concern. One NHL scout thinks that Lucic needs to lose some weight as he cannot keep up in the fast NHL."I have to create more, be better on the forecheck, better on the cycle," said Lucic. "A big part of this is bearing down, too. If you look at my shooting percentage compared to the past, it's way down (9.6 per cent this year, compared to a 14.8 average for his career)." Lucic has 11 goals and 30 points in 56 games this season but if you were expecting 100-plus penalty minutes this season, you have been majorly disappointed as he has only 30 to date.

Milan Lucic tied the game on the power play with less than five minutes remaining in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Nashville Predators.

It was a great sequence leading up to the goal for Lucic. He first obliterated Austin Watson behind the net, then drew a retaliation penalty before putting the puck in the back of the end on the ensuing power play. It was Lucic's first goal since December 21 against the Coyotes. This season has been increasingly hard to deal with his inconsistent scoring habits because his penalty minute totals are down. However, he did pick up seven penalty minutes in the loss. He now has 28 points and 25 penalty minutes in 48 games this season.

Milan Lucic won the hardest shot in Edmonton's super skills competition Sunday.

Lucic's shot was 102.7 MPH. That's nice but Lucic has gone 10 games without a goal and it has been 17 games since he scored at even strength. Poolies who took Lucic in part for his penalty minute totals have been so disappointed this season as he has only 18. Even teammate Connor McDavid has more with 20. It's been a tough go of things of late for the tough winger who has nine goals and 26 points this season.
Jan 16 - 7:20 AM

Milan Lucic recorded an assist in Edmonton's 5-3 loss to San Jose on Tuesday.

Lucic ended a four-game point drought. He has 10 goals and 27 points in 43 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 11 - 4:41 AM

Many didn't think highly of Milan Lucic heading north to Edmonton, nor did they think the Oilers were spending their money wisely.

But the early returns are looking pretty good. The 28-year-old has 10 goals and 24 points to go along with 89 hits while playing in each of Edmonton's 36 games thus far. The one surprise? Just 18 PIMs. He hasn't posted fewer than 75 PIMs in a season aside from his injury-shortened 2009-10, where he still put up 44 PIMs in 50 games for Boston. In normal leagues, Lucic is probably best served as a quality depth option. But for those in alternative pools, one can reasonably hold out hope that he'll spend a bit more time in the penalty box moving forward.

Milan Lucic found the back of the net in Edmonton's 3-2 win over Arizona.

That was Lucic's second goal in the span of three games. Over 35 contests this season he has 10 goals and 24 points.

Milan Lucic scored his ninth of the season Saturday.

Lucic's goal was on the power play and it was his third with the man-advantage. Lucic has 23 points but a big reason to take him in many pools is his penalty minute totals and that has gone by the wayside this season with only 18. It was thought that Lucic could hit the 100-minute mark this season as he would be protecting Connor McDavid but that has not been needed thus far. He is still worth it to have in your lineup and his minutes totals sure skyrocket if anyone takes any liberties with the young McDavid.
