Any Bruins fans out there know what's going on in Boston with Milan Lucic? Just read on Left Wing Lock that Lucic "Was on the 5th line in practice today - that's the line for healthy scratches."

Has he been playing poorly lately or costing the team with silly penalties or something???

Lucic's game is more than just goals (and assists), but with only two goals in his last 27, that's a big drop in production.

Lucic has 6 goals in 41 games this season, which is a big drop when compared to the last two seasons. (30 and 26 goals respectively.)

And he's just about to start on a deal at 6M per season. Lucic's game might be about physical intimidation, but at 6M a year, you are also expected to get a lot of points.

I haven't watched BOS much this year so I can't comment much, but I'd be surprised if it was more than a phase or perhaps something in his personal life. Players go through slumps, and sometimes a visit to the pressbox to shake things up is a good thing.

He'll get a couple of maintenance days for sure before the playoffs. Guaranteed he's nursing a few bumps and bruises at the very least, but it could be more serious.

You can always tell if a player has other stuff going on, or is hurt, by how much a coach talks about the player's bad slump. And it's been pretty quiet on that front here.

He was a healthy scratch again in the game against Pittsburgh today.

Crazy! Not that we'd ever hear until their season is over, but you have to wonder if he's hurt and they're letting him rest up and heal for the playoffs???

What I like is that he doesn't blame anyone for him being a scratch other than himself. That gives me confidence that he will work his way back into the game.
