With the Boston Bruins fighting to maintain a spot in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs, forward Milan Lucic is doing his best to keep them there.

Lucic scored three goals in the past week, including his second multigoal game of the season against the New York Rangers, and the winner against the Florida Panthers in a crucial game in the race for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference.

"You talk about those four-point games where you're able to get two points but also not let them get anything," Lucic said after scoring the game-winner against Florida. "So I think it makes it that much bigger of a win to be able to come out and win that one in regulation."

Playing with two rookies, center Ryan Spooner and right wing David Pastrnak, Lucic has been finding offensive success while helping to lead his younger linemates.

"I've never really been in this position where you're the oldest guy and, you know, a lot more games than both of them put together," Lucic said. "Just trying to enjoy it and trying to have fun with it -- you see they're having a lot of fun, just trying to have that, I guess, youthful fun like I had when I was their age."
