Milan Lucic was the second Boston Bruins player to get back at the Canucks for Alex Burrows biting Patrice Bergeron in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. First it was Mark Recchi sticking his glove in Maxim Lapierre’s face, then it was Lucic taunting with his finger. Check out the video:
There is little doubt Lucic slashed Burrows and took a cheap punch at him behind the net before Burrows reacted, so that was all on Lucic. Still, as a Bruins fan, it’s hard to say it wasn’t worth it. The best part is Boston scored to make it 5-0 right after that, and went on to win 8-1. With a goalie like Roberto Luongo, it’s hard to say he’ll just put the poor performance behind him. Luongo’s a notorious head case who will hopefully carry the shoddy showing with him the rest of the series.
