TORONTO (AP) -Boston left winger Milan Lucic was suspended for a game by the NHL on Sunday for a blow to the head on Montreal's Maxim Lapierre in the Bruins' Game 2 victory Saturday night in Boston.

Lucic was assessed a match penalty for high-sticking with 4:32 left in the game.

"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 Colin Campbell, the NHL's senior executive vice president of hockey operations.

Lucic will miss Game 3 on Monday night in Montreal.

The Bruins lead the best-of-seven series 2-0.
