Boston left winger Milan Lucic was suspended for a game by the NHL on Sunday for a blow to the head on Montreal’s Maxim Lapierre in the Bruins’ Game 2 victory Saturday night in Boston. Lucic was assessed a match penalty for high-sticking with 4:32 left in the game.
“While it is unclear whether Lucic’s glove or stick makes contact with Lapierre, what is clear is that he delivered a reckless and forceful blow to the head of his opponent,” said Colin Campbell, the NHL’s senior executive vice president of hockey operations.”
As a result, Lucic will miss Monday’s Game 3 against the Canadiens.
