Lucic to have hearing, no discipline for Cole
Boston forward Milan Lucic will have a phone hearing with the NHL's head of discipline Brendan Shanahan Monday morning.
Boston forward Milan Lucic will have a phone hearing with the NHL's head of discipline Brendan Shanahan Monday morning.

The hearing will be in regards to a hit Lucic delivered to Philadelphia's Zac Rinaldo in the Bruins' 6-0 win over the Flyers Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center.

In addition to announcing that Lucic will have a hearing Monday, the NHL announced that it will not have a hearing for Montreal's Erik Cole, who delivered a check to New Jersey's Adam Larsson Saturday night in which Larsson was struck in the head.

While announcing that Cole would not receive supplemental discipline Sunday, Shanahan said, "We reviewed this play extensively. The overriding factor in this two-minute minor penalty not receiving further supplemental discipline is the significant change of position to Larsson's head as he bends over and lunges for the puck just prior or simultaneous to the check by Erik Cole."
Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
