Milan Lucic is at the center of attention following his actions in the hand-shake line on Wednsesday night following the Montreal Canadiens’ defeat of his Boston Bruins in Game Seven of the Eastern Conference semi-finals.
Canadiens forward Dale Weise, who scored the Habs’ first goal on their first shot of the game, alleged that Lucic threatened him, and later on in the line, his teammate Alexi Emelin.
According to Aaron Ward of TSN, Lucic said “I’m going to f**king kill you next year” to Weise.
All hockey fans know Lucic as one of the NHL’s most competitive spirits, and his previous actions have come near to crossing the line as far as sportsmanship goes.
Many of the Bruins have been made infamous for such actions, and the club is one of the most hated in the league for that reason.
As a hockey player myself, I can understand the emotion Lucic feels during his loss. All analysts and bloggers who have never played the game simply cant comprehend what is going through Lucic’s head after the defeat. However, this doesn’t make his actions okay. The NHL will certainly take a lo0k into the situation.
Here is a iso-cam of Lucic during the handshake line:
