Video: Bruins’ Lucic cut after hit from Canadiens’ Subban

Mar 27, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic received a cut near his right eye following a hit from Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban in the second period of Wednesday’s game.

Subban threw his body in a wild fashion at Lucic, catching him with a hit along the boards, as the Bruins’ power forward was skating the puck through the neutral zone.

    Someone call the Ottawa CSI unit…..we have a serial cutter…..

  2. govtminion - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:35 PM

    habsman of course knows that Lucic intentionally cut himself to draw a penalty.

    • sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:19 PM

      No he doesn’t–the game started after his bedtime.

    • icer13 - Mar 29, 2013 at 3:22 PM

      Lootch itch was embellishing. Probably opened a cut from when he was shaving his unibrow.

    Okay habsman was that a dirty hit or a high stick??? But what a game

  4. sjsharks66 - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:38 PM

    He left his feet and hit him with his elbow. Knowing shanaban there will be no hearing for this. Dirty move from subban, what a shocker.

    • itsallniceonice - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:55 PM

      Doesn’t deserve a look from Shanahan. Doesn’t even indirectly affect the head and if Nash didn’t get suspended no way Subban can be. The leap was hilarious though.

      • sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:10 PM

        “Doesn’t even indirectly affect the head”? Then how was there blood running down Lucic’s face afterward?

  5. bgrillz - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:39 PM

    Subbag is one of the dirtiest little punks in the NHL. He gets confronted and puts his hands in the air and skates away. Nothing worse than a punk. Just like that punk Gionta who wouldn’t answer the bell vs Cooke last night. Bunch of punks. But that’s Montreal for you.

    • sportsfaninyyc - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:48 PM

      And Krecjki wanting no part of Andre Markov, a guy with one fight in his career, real tough guy!!

      • sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:11 PM

        That was a stare-down: neither player wanted to fight.

      • scalfor3 - Mar 28, 2013 at 1:49 AM

        Is Markov the tough guy? Trying to pick on a significantly smaller finesse first liner who doesn’t fight?

      • giantsfan1111 - Mar 28, 2013 at 11:53 AM

        I noticed that the Champion of the Habs Markov went after all of the big tough Bruins like Krecjki and Seguin. I didn’t see him chacing after Chara or Lucic, 6’2″ coward !!! By the way he should invest in some skating lessons because they were walking around him last night like he didn’t exist.

        P.S. Subban anoher coward. When you leave your feet for a check automatic penalty then blood two more minutes. The ref was 4 feet away and swallowed his whistle.

    • solador78 - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:00 PM

      Shawn Thornton is the worst skater in the league. Eller breathed on him in the second and he fell down drawing a penalty that lead to the third goal.

      Does Marchant know how to throw a bodycheck without going for a slewfoot?

      And Chara and Julienne are the biggest (literally) cry babies in the league. Chara even cost his team the win for the second game in a row versus the Habs. He was unlucky not to draw a 10 for his tantrum, which would have sealed the game for the Bruins. Instead he buried the equalizer with 8 seconds to go and half of the Bruins fans already drunk driving home.

      • itsallniceonice - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:07 PM

        Damn if all that noise was made by half a stadium of sober Bruins fans then they must have the best fans in the league! Grow up kid.

      • solador78 - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:09 PM

        RDS was making fun of all the Bruins fans trying to race back to their seats for Overtime and even halfway through the shootout.

      • drewzducks - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:09 PM

        I haven’t heard such garbage since the mighty Cannots somehow managed to lose to the same team you’re complaining about 2 years ago. At least you’re not a fan of those chokers.

      • solador78 - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:12 PM

        I made big $$$ betting on the Bruins during great Stanley Cup swindle of 2010.

      • dropthepuckeh - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:13 PM

        Shawn “name on two Cups” is more valuable than half of the Habs roster but you are too clueless to notice. Good comeback for the Habs but lets not get ahead of ourselves. I’m pretty sure the diving and embellishment will not be called in the 3rd in the playoffs so it might be tough to expect so much time on the PP.

        My take away from watching this game – bring it Montreal. Love the hate but your team has no heart.

      • solador78 - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:26 PM

        Your takeway from watching the game should have been that the Habs played one of their worst games of the season and for the second time in a month, beat the Bruins on the road, one day after playing the Penguins.

        If they can’t beat a tired and old team of midgets, at home, in the second game of a back-to-back, what does that say about your team?

    • valoisjoeybfeld69 - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:21 PM

      Use your grey matter buddy. Why the hell would Gionta fight Cooke?

  6. itsallniceonice - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:44 PM

    This post is ridiculously late and perfectly timed to stir up page views and comments from Habs and Bruins fans whining about respective players and fanbases. Good job PHT.

  7. nunan - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:45 PM

    Great game. Bad break with that delay of game penalty at the end. No control over that. Now just go get Iginla, get healthy, and get Soderberg here and we’re in business. Best second period of the season right there. Been waiting to see them play that way ALL season.

    • sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:12 PM

      As horrible as the first period was, that second period was an absolute BEAST.

  8. packerswin96 - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:47 PM

    Watching the replay, if Lucy got cut it was by his own stick. What a game.

  9. mclovinhockey - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:49 PM

    Anyone know why the one shoot out goal was disallowed? I’ve seen that happen so many times and count. Was kinda shocked

    • itsallniceonice - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:53 PM

      Hit the puck twice which is illegal.

    • solador78 - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:54 PM

      Desharnais knocked it in with a second touch with his knee when he slid into Rask.

    • packerswin96 - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:58 PM

      Hit the puck twice, but was really surprised that it was disallowed during play.

    • sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:14 PM

      He also skated into Rask before the puck crossed. I believe that is another reason why it could’ve been disallowed.

  10. drewzducks - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:51 PM

    When you don’t play for 60+ against a very good team you get what you deserve. Maybe the infusion of someone who is desperate to get his name on a Cup would light a fire under the asses of the guys he’d be counting on to bring it on a nightly basis.

    • sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:04 PM

      I wish I could disagree with this. But I can’t. Even though the B’s had 41 shots and were wildly ahead in the faceoffs department. Because that first period SUCKED–they came out slow and are continuing a disturbing trend of having trouble moving the puck out of their own zone regardless of opponent. This trend has gone on for a long time, and in my opinion the biggest offenders are Chara and Ference. Chara is simply too slow. Ference has no excuse I’m aware of.

    • solador78 - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:06 PM

      You guys might want to do something about Andrew “Bill Buckner” Ferrence on your blue line.

      Since you’ve probably only been on the Red Sox bandwagon since 2004, here’s the video:

      • drewzducks - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:14 PM

        Try ’75 SFB and as bad as Ference has been all year the Bs exposed Markov as the biggest liability on the ice tonight. Habs may want to add a D who can actually play D.

      • sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:15 PM

        Considering I saw Buckner’s screwup (along with the poor pitching of Schiraldi et al) live in 1986, I think you need to take your garbage elsewhere.

      • dropthepuckeh - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:34 PM

        You are going back to baseball in 1986??? Just go away sallydor…..

      • itsallniceonice - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:50 PM

        How about them Expos?

  11. mjdkid100 - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:55 PM

    On the delay of game…what’s the rule? That’s not considered a deflection?

    • sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:00 PM

      Rule 63.2, paragraph 3, states: “When any player, while in his defending zone, shoots or bats (using his hand or his stick) the puck directly (non-deflected) out of the playing surface, except where there is no glass, a penalty shall be assessed for delaying the game.”

      So apparently the refs didn’t think it was a deflection. I myself cannot understand HOW they didn’t think it was a deflection.

      • sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:57 PM

        Hahaha it seems a couple of you are thumbing down most of my posts. I must be doing something right.

      • hockeyflow33 - Mar 28, 2013 at 12:02 AM

        It went along with the rest of their horrendous calls all night. Not sure why too many men wasn’t called on the third goal and then I remembered who the Bs were playing

  12. graymalkin26 - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:56 PM

    Ole ole ole ole, bruins suck bruins suck. Better run out and get that 60 yr old power forward…haahaa!

  13. jkaplan11 - Mar 27, 2013 at 10:56 PM

    Pittsburgh > Montreal > Boston

    Proven this week.

    • sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:18 PM

      This B’s fan agrees that the Pens are better than the Bruins. I tell you, if it’s a Hawks-Pens final, that’ll be one of the most amazing displays of hockey wizardry people have seen in a long time.

      • JoeAvg - Mar 28, 2013 at 12:09 AM

        Exactly what hoping for.

  14. graymalkin26 - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:05 PM

    Funny reading the post from the goof who wants to bring in a couple of new players. Hey boston bean packer, why not get a whole new team.

  15. graymalkin26 - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:13 PM

    Stop crying about a little cut on that big dummy’s face…bruins choked…Julian will no doubt be crying to the press later.

    • govtminion - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:24 PM

      …Did you watch the game at all?

    • dropthepuckeh - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:31 PM

      How’s Malkin doing? One cut on the face away from retired very possibly. The press conference you reference is a scheduled mandatory meeting with beat writers so get over yourself.Crosby and Malkin are on small hit away from texting with Savard every night so be very careful about your couch bravado loser.

  16. sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:28 PM

    Anybody else see Subban grab Marchand’s stick and hit himself in the face with it, which led to Marchand being sent to the box?

    • sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:35 PM

      No? Well then see for yourself.

      • jkaplan11 - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:42 PM

      • solador78 - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:43 PM

        You would think that Marchant wouldn’t be so limp with two hands on his… stick.

      • sabatimus - Mar 27, 2013 at 11:54 PM

        I love the baby crying “argument”. Brings to the table a lot of facts about the incident in question.

  17. malkinrulez - Mar 28, 2013 at 9:23 AM

    dropthepuckeh Malkin’s doing fine. You will find out soon enough in the playoffs.

  18. crmgoodness - Mar 28, 2013 at 12:36 PM

    PK missed…

    It was Bouillion’s stick…look at 0:27 in the video…it was a bang bang play and unintentional, but should have been a double minor…

    next time he’ll just have to throw his head back, fall down and writhe in pain
