Milan Lucic has backpedaled from emotional statements he’s made in the past, but with two days to think about his latest heat-of-the-moment remarks, he’s not sorry about what he said in the handshake line following the Boston-Montreal series.
From ESPN’s Joe McDonald:
In case you somehow missed what Lucic said to Montreal’s Dale Weise, it was apparently, “I’m going to f—— kill you next year.”
The big Bruins winger also reportedly threatened Alexei Emelin in a similar manner.
