Milan Lucic with the ‘you can’t do that’ of the night

The best thing I can say about this hit Milan Lucic delivered to Alexei Emelin, as noted by Pro Hockey Talk's Cam Tucker, is that this is a textbook "he hit the dude in the numbers and then the head" hit, the kind that the Department of Player Safety tends to illustrate as a no-no.

The fact that Emelin wasn't hurt plays in Lucic's favor, but I'd imagine the fact that Lucic scored en route to the Bruins' 4-1 win adds insult to lack of injury:

I can already hear Don Cherry getting ready to defend "Loosick's" hit if this one registers on the NHL's radar.

Same kind of hit, as a hit on Smith a couple days ago. But let’s see Lucic is an important player to Bruins, let’s see if different rules apply.

The NHL can’t upset Jeremy Jacobs too much. They know who provides the butter for Bettman’s toast.
