Report: Lucic not suspended for Game 7

Posted on: April 27, 2011 2:26 pm
 

After receiving a game misconduct and a five-minute major for boarding in Game 6, Milan Lucic will not be suspended for Game 7, Nick Kypreos of Rogers Sports net in Canada reports.

It answers a big question that was raised the instant Lucic was sent to the locker room early for his crushing hit on Jaroslav Spacek. Debate has raged since the hit of whether it was the right call or too severe. Either way, it's a moot point now as the series reaches the pinnacle, Game 7 tonight in Beantown.

Lucic was a key player for the Bruins' scoring punch this season, netting 30 goals to complement his 32 assists. But in this series the Habs have done a good job keeping him in check as Lucic has just one assist in the six games with a minus-1 rating and 17 penalty minutes (greatly assisted by the Game 6 misconduct).

The Bruins and Canadiens face off at 7 p.m. ET tonight for the eighth Game 7 in the storied rivalry's history, the most times of any two teams in NHL playoff history. For a breakdown of the game, click here . Watch the hit in question below.

Report: Lucic not suspended for Game 7

Of course Lucic was not suspended. The Bruins never get suspended for anything! They run around trying to kill people and never have to pay for it. Then their idiot "fans" come on boards like this and run their mouths like they are all big and bad. If the league doesn't start doing something soon, somebody is going to get hurt very seriously. I guarantee if somebody had laid some of these hits on the Bruins, they would be severely disciplined. This is the problem with the league. They come out and say they want to clean up the gameand make it safer for the players. But when it comes time to hand out some discipline, it looks like they have no clue what is or isn't worthy of discipline. There asture a couple of teams that can do what they want  without punishment and then everybody else get some suspended if they breathe on somebody. It's a joke and its one of the reasons why hockey is not considered a real sport!!!!!

There's a lot of acting going on by Montreal trying to draw the penalty. Throw them all out on the grass and give them a soccer ball...that's where they belong!! Hockey is the toughest sport going and getting hurt is part of the game!! Stop your flopping around Montreal!!

LOL at you guys.  It was a hit worth of a 5 and 10 and then move on.  To say oscar worthy is a joke.  He got creamed.  I have seen lesser hits get a game or two off but it's the playoffs so let them play.

Spacec saw the hit coming and turned his back. Lucic is going to blow this guy up at center ice in game 7. Montreal is a team of sissys.
