I'm not advocating our guys necessarily copying EXACTLY what just transpired in the Bruins game, but if you're watching the Bruins/Panthers, Lucic just got semi-crosschecked/pushed into the boards from behind by Mike Weaver. There was no call on Weaver, though there probably could have been, but it wasn't a really, really bad hit (probably should have been 2). Regardless, Lucic got up and rocked Weaver with a crosscheck of his own and then went right after him and tried to rip his head off. It resulted in a double minor against Lucic and it looks like Lucic got the boot as well. Again, not advocating this exactly, but as bad of a penalty as it is to take, Lucic sent a loud, clear "you don't mess with me our my boys" to the Panthers with it and, honestly, when you're down like we were last night and McDonagh gets boarded the way he did, that's something I'd love to see Girardi or Boyle or Staal or Pyatt or somebody do to send that message in retaliation. I don't care about the penalty. In the Bruins game, it's more selfish of Lucic because there's still 20 minutes to go in a 2 goal game, but in our game, when you know we're going to lose, after the McDonagh board or the Biron play, somebody should just suck it up and take the penalty.
