is focused not on the Wild, but on what the Bruins can do to prepare themselves.
“I think when you play teams like this you kind of worry about yourself and what you need to do and if we can do that I think that’s our best way of being successful,” Lucic said.
Going into Tuesday night's action, the Wild were third in the Northwest Division of the Western Conference with an 18-15-5 record.
“They’re a Western Conference team, so we don’t play them very much,” Lucic said. “But you know looking back at the Bruins history with them it’s not very good.”
Coming off the road trip where Boston picked up eight of a possible ten points and created a three-point gap between themselves and the Montreal Canadiens with two games in hand, the Bruin’s are looking to keep the momentum going.
“Obviously points are always hard to come by on the road, especially with a trip like that," said Lucic. "So it’s great that we had a successful one and hopefully we can build off that." ---Hannah Becker
