NHL suspends Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic one game @NHLdotcom

TORONTO - The NHL has suspended Bruins left-winger Milan Lucic one game for his blow to the head on Montreal's Maxim Lapierre in Boston's Game 2 victory Saturday.

Lucic was assessed a match penalty for high-sticking 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 Colin Campbell, the NHL's senior executive vice president of hockey operations in a statement Sunday.

Lucic will miss Game 3 on Monday night in Montreal.

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