Fantasy Spin: B's, Lucic go out with a bang
It was a pretty good month for the Stanley Cup champion Bruins and their rugged left winger Milan Lucic.  With a 6-3 win over Toronto Tuesday night, the Bruins capped an incredible 12-0-1 November.  As he has done all season long against the Leafs, Lucic was dominant once again, scoring a pair of goals in the B's latest victory.

GOALS: 10 | ASST: 8 | PTS: 18
SOG: 42 | +/-: 6
Toronto shouldn't feel singled out as Lucic has made life difficult on most of the teams he has faced over the span of November.  In 13 games this month, Lucic has scored seven goals, including three on the power play,  while also chipping in four assists, 15 PIMS and a plus 4 rating.  When Lucic gets on the type of run he is currently on, the 23-year old is fantasy gold as he can contribute to categories across the board.  There are few players in the NHL who have the ability to score 30-plus goals a season while racking up well over 100 PIMs as Lucic did last year.  If you are in a league that counts hits as a category, Lucic is even more valuable as he has 51 on the season.

When taking into consideration his age, potential to improve, and the skill around him in Boston, Lucic is the kind of force fantasy GMs should be salivating over.  Of course Lucic is well regarded in the fantasy world but not probably to the extent he should be.  If Lucic is putting the puck in the net on a consistent basis, then his all around game makes him one of the top left wing options in the entire League.  Both the B's and Lucic had November's to remember and it looks like nothing but blue skies ahead.
