Description: Milan Lucic recorded an assist while taking seven minutes in penalties in the Bruins' 4-3 shootout win over Buffalo on Wednesday. NHL.com
Insight: In the first Bruins/Sabres match since Lucic nailed Ryan Miller, Paul Gaustad challenged Lucic to a fight, as per hockey code. Lucic had no problem handling the Sabres' enforcer, winning the fight easily. Perhaps the Sabres consider the matter settled, but they are probably more concerned about the fact they ended up losing after holding a 2-0 lead.
 
11/15/2011 12:32:00 AM
Description: Milan Lucic was not suspended or fined for his hit on Ryan Miller on Saturday. TSN
Insight: NHL rules clearly state that a goalie is not fair game to be hit, even if he wanders out of his crease. Since a goalie receiving a concussion via a hit is not something that happens every day, Brendan Shanahan could not easily interpret this situation. Lucic owners can keep him in the lineup, while Miller owners will have to make do without him for a little while.
