League gives no word about Lucic discipline
BOSTON — There was no indication Sunday that Bruins tough guy Milan Lucic, who leads the playoffs with 43 penalty minutes, will be suspended for his Game 1 punch to the face of Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman.
Boston coach Claude Julien was not sympathetic to Tampa Bay coach Guy Boucher's call Saturday for the league to review the incident with 36.7 seconds left. Lucic received a two-minute roughing penalty and 10-minute misconduct.
"Those are things that happen in the game, and we can whine and cry about things. We take care of our own business," Julien said. "If he feels that way, that's his prerogative. We are moving on to the next game, and we are not even thinking about that."
"The league said they were going to take a look at all head shots," Boucher said Sunday. "They've got their standards. We're going to see what the reaction is."
