Milan Lucic LW BOS 5 Days

Lucic scored his sixth goal of the season Tuesday in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Predators, snapping a six-game goalless streak.

The offense has been slow to come for Lucic this season. Typically a reliable candidate to perform at a 60-point pace, he's not even averaging a point every other game currently, with just 15 in 31 contests. He's still an elite fantasy performer in formats that count hits and PIM, though, as his four penalty minutes Tuesday pushed him to 60 on the year and he also collected his 100th hit of the campaign.

Lucic picked up 12 PIM and was credited with a game-high six hits in Friday's shootout win over the Blue Jackets.

Quite the eventful night for Lucic, who got one-punched by Jackets' Dalton Prout in the overtime period. Looch took exception to the knockout, earning himself a game misconduct for the following punch he threw after the linesman had broken up the fight. While he may be contributing with PIM and hits, Lucic has now gone pointless in four straight games, managing only three goals on the season. He is on pace to record his lowest full-season point total since 2009-10. While Lucic's better than what he is showing right now, he isn't playing anything like the 30-goal, 60-point player we have gotten to know in the past.

Lucic had the primary assist on three goals -- two on the power play -- in Tuesday's win over the Sharks.

Impressive playmaking by Lucic, who's racked up five helpers in his last three games (accounting for all his offensive output this year), but still hasn't found the back of the net himself. He didn't even put a shot on goal Tuesday, the third time that's happened this year.

Lucic picked up his first points of the season -- a pair of assists -- as well as a dozen penalty minutes in Thursday's loss to Montreal.

He was ejected late in the game, which is how he compiled all those PIM. He also could potentially end up with a short suspension after making rude gestures at the crowd. Lucic also went minus-1, so coming off last year's plus-30, he's minus-2 through six games this year. The PIM contributions are expected, but it's odd that Lucic opened the year with five point-free games. Monitor him carefully.

Lucic was ejected late in the third period after he made gestures at the crowd and had words with the ref following a penalty late in the third period, Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports.

Lucic vented some of his frustration after being called for a penalty late in the third period, but it cost him the rest of the game. He will almost certainly face at least a fine for his actions but may receive a short suspension as well. Either way, the situation should be resolved in the next few days.

Lucic (wrist) made his preseason debut Saturday against the Red Wings, the Boston Globe reports.

Lucic, who worked on a line with Ryan Spooner and Jared Knight on Saturday, took three penalties in 14:57 worth of ice time in the contest, while failing to record a shot. While Lucic will need to see some more action in order to get his timing back, assuming no setbacks, his status for the B's regular season opener appears secure.

Lucic (wrist) could play Saturday against the Red Wings, the Boston Globe reports.

While the rugged left winger -- who is bouncing back from offseason wrist surgery -- did not play Friday against Washington, he is traveling with the team and could make his preseason debut as soon as Saturday's tilt against Detroit.

Lucic (wrist) did not play in Sunday's scrimmage, the Bruins' official site reports.

Lucic is playing is safe following offseason wrist surgery and while he is able to practice, he hasn't been cleared yet for games just yet.

Lucic (wrist) will be limited at the start of training camp, the Boston Herald reports.

Lucic is recovering from wrist surgery, so this is not unexpected, though at this stage, there hasn't been anything to suggest that the rugged winger's status for the start of the regular season is in any danger.
