Milan Lucic spearheads talk

Milan Lucic is at his best when he plays with emotion, and every once in a while he steps over the line.At 19:55 of the second period in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with the Detroit Red Wings, Lucic took a running jump and cleared that imaginary line with the greatest of ease. Lucic went unpunished Friday at the Garden when he speared Detroit’s Danny DeKeyser in the private parts from behind, but the long arm of the NHL law caught up with him yesterday. The league fined Lucic $5,000.

Milan Lucic fined $5,000 for spear on Danny DeKeyser, says he’s still an honest player

Bruins forward Milan Lucic was fined $5,000 Saturday for spearing Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser in the groin in Detroit’s 1-0 Game 1 victory over the B’s. Lucic skated up behind DeKeyser in the second period of the then-scoreless game, stuck his stick between DeKeyser’s legs and forcefully yanked it up, causing DeKeyser to fall [...]

David Backes Leveled by Brent Seabrook

The third period was not the best period of the game for the Blues. Two deflections wound up in the back of the net, Bryan Bickell knee'd Vladimir Sobotka, the power play wasn't clicking, and then this happened: Backes was extremely slow to get up, and when he did he had no clue where he was - he tried to go after Seabrook in the ensuing scrum, but it was broken up and a very wobbly Backes was led back to the locker room to get medical attention. There was no penalty on the play, but Seabrook was ejected from the game. He's never been suspended before, but at least a few games would not be...

Applying pressure critical for Bruins in Game 2

This is the time of year when NHL referees mostly put their whistles away, generally calling only the most blatant fouls and letting stuff go that would be penalized in the regular season.The Detroit Red Wings took good advantage of that knowledge during Friday’s remarkably tight and defensive 1-0 victory against the Bruins in Game 1 of their first-round series.More than once, Wings defenders stepped into the path of Bruins trying to get in on the forecheck — interference that often would earn two minutes during the season.

Minnesota Wild’s defense to blame in Game 2 loss

It may not be a series until each team plays at home. But it's not going to be much of a series anyway if the Wild don't start defending better. A Wild team that was so structurally sound, so good defensively for so much of this season has been so bad in the first two games of this series. Because of that, they trail the series 2-0 as they head back to St. Paul for Game 3. Saturday was the more eye-opening game because of the way Colorado's top line made the Wild look. Nathan MacKinnon, Paul Stastny and Gabriel Landeskog were a threat every time they were on the ice. They scored all four......
