NHL Suspends Lucic For One Game

by Staff Writer / Boston Bruins
TORONTO (April 19, 2009) - Boston Bruins' forward Milan Lucic has been suspended for one game as a result of a blow to the head in Game Two of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series last night against the Montreal Canadiens. 

Lucic was assessed a match penalty for highsticking Montreal forward Maxim Lapierre at 15:28 of the third period.     
"While it is unclear whether Lucic's glove or stick makes contact with Lapierre, what is clear is that he delivered a reckless and forceful blow to the head of his opponent," said NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell. 
Lucic's suspension will be served on Monday night when the Bruins meet the Canadiens in Game Three of the series.
