Video: Lucic answers the bell against Sabres

Nov 23, 2011, 7:47 PM EDT

The Sabres official Twitter feed summed it up quite nicely. It only took 1:23 into the game for the Sabres to send the message that they failed to do the last time Buffalo and Boston took the ice. On the third shift of the game – and the first time Milan Lucic took the ice – Sabres coach countered with Paul Guastad. 18,000 people in First Niagara Center knew what was coming next.

This was only the beginning of a first period that featured plenty of fireworks.

      Fighting IS part of the game. Don’t like it, go watch Tennis or something….

      Are you kidding me? That fight was terrible. Gaustad should be embarrassed.

    I had Lucic winning.

    Sabres announcers made it sound as if Gaustad won that fight. That was a TKO by the Asskicker.

    by a bit; did Guastad land a punch? a couple seemed close, but its sort of like McFly’s old man trying to take on Biff, only to get his face slammed into the hood of a ’61 Olds.

    I didn’t hear the Sabres announcers, but clearly Looch won that one. (Jack Edwards was in great form, as usual. He called it a unanimous decision.). A good, honest fight. (you’re right JJ, this is a man’s game).

    Both the Buffalo and Boston fans had reason to be happy after this match. Buffalo responded nicely, and earned some respect. The B’s played a tough game and stretched it to ten.

    The game lived up to the hype.

    You’d better be a helluva fighter to take on Lucic. The guy’s an animal!
