The Big Bad Bruins identity is all Milan Lucic wants from Boston.
"It's that Big Bad Bruins team, that championship team. I think I speak for everyone when I say that's what we want to see with this team moving forward. That's my take on it." Whether or not that's ideal for the Lucic or the organization is another story, but Lucic has certainly personified the "team identity". Now through eight seasons in his career Lucic has averaged 17 goals, 43 points, 97 PIMs, and 143 hits per season. Lucic also has one season left at $6M towards the cap coming into his age 27 season.

Milan Lucic would like to stay with the Boston Bruins.

"It would be really, really hard to see myself in different colors or in a different jersey or in a different city in a different organization," Lucic said. "I hope to continue being a Bruin and I hope they want me here as well. Because it has to come from both sides and both ends." He will make $6.5 million ($6 million cap hit) in the last year of his contract next year. The Bruins still need to have a discussion on what to do with him.

The rumor mill has suggested that Boston may trade Milan Lucic in the off-season.

In 81 games this season, Lucic registered 18 goals and 44 points to go with 81 penalty minutes and 259 hits. He has a $6 million cap hit and is slated to make $6.5 million in 2015-16 before he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Milan Lucic notched two points, including the game-winning goal, in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Florida.

He snapped the winner with just 1:09 remaining in the third period to put the Bruins ahead of the Panthers by six points in the standings and three up on Ottawa for the last playoff spot in the East. Lucic also had an assist on David Pastrnak's tying goal earlier in the third.

Milan Lucic scored the first two goals of the Boston Bruins' 4-2 win against the New York Rangers on Saturday.

The beastly power forward now has 17 goals and 42 points on the season. This may have been a much tougher game for the Bruins if he didn't find the net twice early.

Boston coach Claude Julien reduced the ice time of the Milan Lucic, Ryan Spooner and David Pastrnak line in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to Anaheim.

The trio hardly played in the third period with the Bruins nursing a lead they would eventually give up. At this point it is obvious that Julien does not trust this line when it doesn't have the puck. "When you watch the game closely you see guys that are really struggling in the battles and along the walls and at that stage you decide whether to protect the lead. They shortened their bench, we had to shorten ours," said Julien. With the return of David Krejci from injury don't be surprised if Julien shuffles his lines as early as Saturday afternoon against the Rangers.

Mar 27 - 8:50 AM

Milan Lucic has recorded three goals and four assists in his past eight matches.

He's looked rejuvenated while playing on a line with Ryan Spooner and David Pastrnak. "A lot of people don't view my game as a skating game, but when I'm skating, that's when I'm most effective, and when I'm moving my feet," Lucic said. "We talk about that straight-line type of hockey, but you can only play that if your legs are going and it seems to be the reason why I've had success of late, playing with these guys." He does miss David Krejci and felt terrible that his linemate has missed so many games this season due to injury. However, it's clear to see his improvement with Spooner as his center even if it is a small sample size.

The Boston Bruins continue to get strong work from the likes of Milan Lucic and David Pastrnak, who factored into Sunday's 2-0 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Lucic scored the only typical goal (Zdeno Chara had an empty-netter), giving him 15 tallies and three GWG on the season. Pastrnak got his 10th assist of 2014-15 as he continues to improve his chemistry on an improving Boston line.
Mar 14 - 3:44 PM

Milan Lucic scored his 14th goal of the season on Thursday night, but he also missed his shootout attempt in Boston's 4-3 shootout loss to Calgary.

It was a pretty goal, too. David Pastrnak and Ryan Spooner did well to confuse Karri Ramo and Calgary's defense as Lucic held his grown by the side of the net. Before Calgary knew it, it was 2-1 Boston just 2:30 into the second period. Lucic is now tied with four others with 35 points, good for third on the team.
Mar 5 - 11:19 PM

Milan Lucic scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over Arizona.

After dropping six games in a row earlier this month, the Bruins have now won three of their last four. Lucic opened the scoring at the 2:40 mark of the first period. He also assisted on Zdeno Chara's power play goal in the second period to extend Boston's lead to 4-0. The 26-year-old has 13 goals and 34 points in 61 games this season.
Mar 1 - 9:43 AM

Milan Lucic skated with Ryan Spooner and David Pastrnak in Sunday's win over Chicago.

He netted his 12th goal of the season in the match, with Spooner and Pastrnak picking up assists on the play. Lucic's marker was the first of four straight tallies by the Bruins during the second period to give Boston a 6-1 lead going into the third. He had a new center (Spooner) because of an injury to David Krejci.

Milan Lucic is looking forward to Friday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

"It's always nice to come back. It's always nice to play in front of family and friends," said the Vancouver native. "These are two teams kind of in the same position — that second spot in the wild card. It's a big game for both teams. I know the crowd is going to be into it and so will be the players. I'm looking forward to it." Lucic has registered two assists and a goal in his past four games.
Feb 13 - 8:15 AM
