It’s inevitable that emotions are running high after a team gets eliminated from the playoffs, but it’s NHL tradition that every player on both teams shake hands after the series is over in a show of sportsmanship. However, it sounds like Bruins forward Milan Lucic wasn’t ready to bury the bury the hatchet after Montreal’s 3-1 victory in Game 7.
Rather than deny Weise’s claim, Lucic responded by calling him a “baby” for telling the media about that.
“It was said on the ice so it will stay on the ice,” Lucic told NHL.com’s Аrpon Basu.
While Weise did draw attention to Lucic’s actions, he didn’t specify exactly what the Bruins forward said.
Lucic was held off the scoresheet in the final four games of the second round.
