(Video) Milan Lucic Comments on the Prout Incident

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic is a great fighter and a pretty good hockey player. Lucic is also one of my favorite Boston Bruins, but I think it's time for him to sack up and get over it. There's going to be days when someone gets the best of you, that's life. This is one of these instances.

Dalton Prout pops Milan Lucic

This one-punch was the subject of much discussion on Twitter. Give credit where credit is due, Dalton Prout got lucky, and I expect that Milan Lucic will extract his pound of flesh the next time the two teams play. In my opinion, Lucic's gloves weren't off and Prout used this as an opportunity to get the upper hand on Lucic.

Almost Two Months in, Lets Look at NHL Power Rankings

The Habs are on top of the NHL right now 20 games into their season. Their record stands at 14-5-1 and look to be the team to beat in the East right now.2. Pittsburgh Penguins.

ASU Adding Hockey College Hockey, Good or Bad?

Keith Ballard Hip Check on Adam Pardy

Nice hip check by Minnesota Wild defenseman Keith Ballard on Adam Pardy. Big Buff and Pardy take exception and the Wild go on the power play. Of course the Wild's powerless play failed. Ballard at least attempted hip check on Adam Pardy, and Big Buff and Pardy retaliate— Michael Russo (@Russostrib) November 16, 2014
