No matter what, the 2014 Stanley Cup Final will begin a week from tonight. The Kings can give themselves a hearty amount of rest by defeating the defending champions tonight. The Blackhawks will need to break some disturbing trends to avoid such a fate.
Milan Lucic may or may not spend a big chunk of his career with the Los Angeles Kings, but the Boston Bruins haven’t forgotten his contributions.
(Their fans haven’t, either.)
The Bruins shared a tribute video for Lucic, decked out in a loud, retro-style Kings sweater on Tuesday. The hulking winger seemed to appreciate the nod from his former team, and also acknowledged fans who watched him develop into one of the league’s most formidable power forwards.
