"Therapy day". So, nothing serious.

Lucic actually addressed the issue of fighting in a meaningless game after his fight with Reichliz last night. I imagine Prust has the same mindset:

"There are a lot of cons in fighting in preseason. You don't want to break a hand or get a concussion or anything like that," said Lucic who took Rechlicz up his invitation to drop the gloves. "But the pros are, no matter what the game is or what the situation is, you're going to stick up for yourself and your teammates. That's what it basically was there. I didn't have a choice. It was a long one. I had to catch my breath after that one."
Coach Claude Julien didn't have a problem with the fight because he feels the preseason is about "fine-tuning your game" and playing tough is part of Lucic's persona.
