This will be Lucic's first game action since May 14, when the Bruins lost Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Second Round to the Montreal Canadiens. He has been recovering from offseason wrist surgery. He skated Saturday morning and received what the Bruins website called a "positive evaluation" on the wrist.
"Looks like it," Lucic said. "Everything's progressed really, really well over the last two weeks, especially, and with the group decision, we decided that today would be a good time for me to come back. I'm excited to get into my first game here."
