The Boston Bruins wanted to play a physical game against Detroit, but this probably isn’t what they had in mind.
While 24-year-old rookie defenseman Danny DeKeyser was looking the other way, Boston’s Milan Lucic speared him at the end of the second period.
There was no penalty on the play, but Lucic might still get punished for this one. You can see the incident below:
This isn’t the first time Lucic has allegedly delivered this kind of hit. He was accused of doing something similar to Montreal’s Alexei Emelin last month:
It’s worth adding that Lucic, who was mad about a hip check Emelin delivered earlier, flatly denied the spearing.
“Just skating by him and that’s all,” Lucic said, per the Hockey News. “People are trying to say I speared him. I did not spear him, so that’s it.”
