The Montreal Canadiens are off to the Eastern Conference Final after a Game Seven win against the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night, and not everyone was happy about it. Case in point: Bruins’ forward Milan Lucic.
When players became available to the media post-game, it was soon revealed that Lucic allegedly threatened two Canadiens’ players: Dale Weise and Alexi Emelin.
Weise broke the story himself, and the on-ice footage proves that Lucic certainly had some choice words for the two Habs.
When asked about the alleged threats, Lucic’s reply was a quick one:
"“It happened on the ice, so let’s leave it on the ice”"
Lucic also retaliated, caling Weise a “Baby” during his post-game availability.
Make what you will of the above video: According to TSN’s Aaron Ward, Lucic said “I’m going to f**king kill you next year”.
Weise and Lucic’s rivalry started in the early stages of the seven-game series, when Weise copied Lucic’s goal celebration by pounding his chest. The Winnipeg native also scored the first goal of the game for the Canadiens in Game Seven.
Lucic has crossed the line previously in his career, and already once in this post-season. Lucic was fined $5,000 for his spear on the Detroit Red Wings’ Danny DeKeyser, and has been suspended previously in his career. It is anticipated that the NHL will look in to the incident.
What do you think of Lucic’s incident? Should he be disciplined?
